Lunch People is a proudly 100% volunteer led and operated organization. Since we started with two people and 25 bowls of free chili in March 2020, Lunch People has grown to include 30+ volunteers who together have served over 2,000 free meals, 140 local produce & pantry boxes, and 1,200 handmade fabric face masks for adults and children in our first year! Now that we've moved to the Cafe location we have many more volunteer positions open.
Lunch People volunteers work at the Community Cafe as cooks, baristas, and community pantry hosts, and also deliver free hot meals and supplies to unhoused neighbors, hang fliers and help spread awareness of our work, create artwork, attend community events, and donate countless time and energy toward making Lunch People an impactful and sustainable community organization. If you'd like to join us, please send us a message to set up a new volunteer meeting!
