Each day, Bread for the City partners with community members like you. Volunteers serve in every Bread for the City department, and whether you can give two hours or two-hundred hours, we thank you for taking a step to help!
All volunteers must be fully vaccinated starting Monday, August 16.
All confirmed volunteers should visit breadforthecity.org/waiver to complete the required documents. (Mandated community service volunteers, admin volunteers, and BFC interns should complete the first and third bullets.) Please review the volunteer handbook to ensure awareness of volunteer policies and procedures. We look forward to working with you!
Sort, hang, and arrange clothing donations. During open hours, offer customer service to Bread for the City’s client population.
Help bag and distribute food items. Offer hospitality to Bread for the City clients as they select groceries to take home!
Administrative volunteers help with filing, scanning, data entry, shredding, and other tasks. A background check, confidentiality agreement, and other paperwork are required for some roles. Administrative volunteers should complete all volunteer documents.
• Admin Support Volunteer – Bread for the City seeks two volunteers to serve two days a week for four hours each. Volunteers who are able to serve for an extended period (two or more months) are preferred. Duties include data entry, telephone monitoring, light client outreach at NW and/or SE centers, reminder and update calls, filing and organization, and administrative support. Interested candidates should click here.
Limited volunteer slots are available for licensed health care professionals interested in volunteering in Bread for the City’s Medical Clinic. Medical volunteers undergo a required credential review and background check.
Bread for the City does not offer internships in our medical division. We have ongoing relationships with area schools for health care students looking for sites to do clinical rotations, but we do not accept applications from individuals.
Thanks for your interest in service!
If you are a law student please contact Tracy Davis at tdavis[at]breadforthecity.org to learn more about current internships in the Legal Clinic.
Bread for the City’s clients speak many more languages than found among the talents of our staff. If you are a bi- or multilingual speaker, we’d love to have you on our bilingual volunteer roster as a potential bridge over language barriers.
Can you help us inspire more people to serve? The Volunteer Program is looking for volunteer ambassadors who’ll commit to learning more about the organization, then represent us at various volunteer fairs and community events. Participants are asked to learn and demonstrate organizational knowledge. To learn more, sign up here.
Do you have business knowledge or a unique skill you can teach our clients? Bread for the City has multiple programs that occasionally need “knowledge sharers” who’ll better prepare our clients for the workplace and life in general. Please submit your résumé to let us know you’re interested!
Volunteer drivers are occasionally needed to pick-up in-kind donations and to support other efforts. If you can help, let us know!
Note: Active skilled volunteers should report their hours at least monthly through the comments field on the special project volunteer form. Please send your number of hours completed, timeframe, department, center, and supervisor when you submit. Completion of this form helps to ensure that Bread for the City always has a record of your service. Thank you!
Looking for a community-minded office activity for your team? Consider an in-kind goods drive (especially a diaper drive or men’s clothing drive) or care kit packaging event!
