At Loaves & Fishes, volunteers are essential to our operations because they Share the Joy with our clients, the community and their fellow volunteers. Thanks to their collaborative efforts, we are able to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors!

We ask that all volunteers (with the exception of specially scheduled work groups) complete an online application and attend an orientation session before their first volunteer shift. Orientation sessions are held monthly, and you can sign up through the volunteer software by clicking the green “New Volunteer Sign Up” button.

Please note that we are a fully functioning warehouse. For your safety, all volunteers must wear closed-toe shoes. You will not be allowed to volunteer wearing flip flops and/or open-toe sandals. Also, we do not have storage lockers on-site, so please refrain from bringing purses or personal items. Thank you!

To learn more about being a Loaves & Fishes volunteer, check out our Volunteer Handbook. Also, familiarize yourself with our parking map to ensure you are in the right spot!

We can’t wait to see you at orientation! If you have any questions, please call 630.355.3663.
