Volunteer at one of our three locations!


Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering with Loaves & Fishes this holiday season. Please check out our brand new volunteer opportunities in Morgan Hill at The Lodge. We are in need of volunteers throughout December!

We are full for volunteers in November and December in San Jose. Please join us in 2015 for a great year of serving hot meals! We thank you for your service with Loaves & Fishes. We are now serving over 1,000 meals per day and rely on the dedicated time from volunteers like you to help provide meals to our guests.

Wishing you all the best this holiday season!

We are fortunate at Loaves & Fishes Family Kitchen to have many wonderful, dedicated volunteers. Without them, we wouldn't be able to do what we do. We invite you to join us in our service to the community. Whether you come as a "regular" or on a one-time basis, your time and service are invaluable to the work we do and the people we serve.

Volunteer hours are from 3:30-6:00 pm. Be ready to help prep the food, serve our guests and help clean up.

Volunteer FAQs

Meal Program

Because our staff is small, we depend largely on our volunteers to help with our meal program. As a volunteer at Loaves & Fishes Family Kitchen, you may be asked to help with all aspects of the meals, including setting up our dining room for dinner, preparing the meal, serving and cleaning up. Volunteers must be able to help for the entire shift.

Grocery Bag Program

As a volunteer with the Grocery Bag Program, you will help sort, package, and distribute grocery bags to low-income families in the community. The program is on the 3rd Wednesday of every month, from 9am to 12pm, at St. Maria Goretti Kitchen, 2980 Senter Road, San Jose, CA 95111
