We still need your help! If you wish to join in our increased supports for our community, we have new volunteer opportunities:
Joyful Grocery Bagging: As a volunteer, you’ll join us at our headquarters in Southeast, D.C. to help build bags full of healthy foods for children and families affected by school closures. This is a behind-the-scenes event; there will be no distribution or community interaction by volunteers, but we will still have music and a ton of fun! 10 am-1 pm M-F
Food Preparation: To meet the increased demand for our programs in Northwest, D.C., we have expanded our historic Food Preparation. Volunteers help prep, cook, and package meals for our nightly, hot meal distribution on McKenna’s Wagon. In addition, volunteers may be asked to help prepare bags of groceries and cold meals for our Lobby Market distribution. 10am-12:30pm M-Su
All of our shifts are available on our VolunteerHub calendar.
While Joyful Food Markets will be suspended at elementary schools due to their closure, we will partner with DC Health, the Capital Area Food Bank, and DCPS and DCPCS to ensure bags of groceries are available at designated select school sites.

February is the month of love, care, and heart health. Because February is all about hearts, now is a great time to learn what heart health is, and steps you can take to care for one of the most critical organs in the human body.

Working to support strong children, strong families, and strong communities can be demanding work, but for our Family Engagement Team it’s another day of doing what you love.
