Volunteering at Food & Friends

Starting July 1, 2021, Food & Friends will only allow fully vaccinated volunteers who have submitted proof of vaccination to our Human Resources team. Please see our Volunteer Vaccine Policy for more details.

Until July 1, all volunteers should continue to wear a mask, keep socially distanced, and follow all other health precautions.

If you have any additional questions about volunteering, please contact  volunteer@foodandfriends.org or call (202) 269-2277. We look forward to welcoming you to a safe and rewarding volunteer experience!


Volunteer as an Individual

At Food & Friends we have many different volunteer opportunities that can fit your busy schedule and interests. All individual volunteers must first attend an orientation and undergo a criminal background check to get started. We ask for a least a 6 month or 20 hour commitment from all individual volunteers.


Volunteer as a Group

We rely on volunteer groups daily to help prepare & package our meals in the kitchen and deliver meals to our clients’ doors. Without the support of organizations we simply could not provide 3,000 meals to our clients each day. We would love to have your school, corporate, social, or faith based group join us at Food & Friends for a great day of teambuilding while serving our clients.


“Volunteering makes me feel connected to the community and connected to my brother who is no longer with us.” - Carol Bresler
