We will gladly credit you with the hours you spend organizing a food drive. You must contact Deb Herr at dherr@lunchbreak.org before doing the aforementioned.

Frequently Asked Questions

What will my volunteer job be once I arrive?

We ask that you come prepared to serve in whatever capacity is needed for the day. You may be asked to prepare or serve food, wash dishes, clean tables and floors, shelve food in the pantry, organize clothing, answer incoming phone calls, and even work outside. (Only trained personnel are allowed to cook in our kitchen.)

What should I wear to volunteer?

Please wear appropriate clothing, long pants, sneakers (or similar) to protect your feet (No open-toed shoes or sandals). No droopy pants or revealing tops (tank tops or spaghetti strap tops).

No jewelry should be worn while working at Lunch Break (watches and wedding rings are fine). Why?

Jewelry such as bracelets, neck chains, and large dangling earrings can cause personal injury if caught on something. Our dress code is established with your safety and the welfare of our clients in mind.

Can (personal) valuables be brought?

Do not bring your valuables into Lunch Break.

Can children volunteer?

Currently, our minimum age to volunteer is 16.

How do groups (corporate, church, schools, etc.) volunteer?
