We still need your help! It is exactly in times like these that our city needs leaders like Martha’s Table to stand up and do what is right to support our neighbors. If you wish to join in our increased supports for our community, we have new volunteer opportunities: 

Joyful Grocery Bagging (The Commons in Southeast): As a volunteer, you’ll help build bags full of healthy foods for children and families affected by school closures. Volunteers will also help break things down and sanitize the space. 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 (The Maycroft in Northwest): To meet the increased demand on our programs, we have expanded our historic Food Preparation shift. 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.


Please read our Volunteer Waiver, Volunteer Code, and Volunteer Health Policy before volunteering.
You can also download our Volunteer Opportunities one-pager to view descriptions of each volunteer shift.
