Volunteer

Volunteerism is the foundation of Food For All DC and is an expression of the belief that society thrives through mutual respect and heart-centered action.

Right now we are looking for volunteer drivers (with your own car) on Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings. We also need a volunteer Executive Assistant to work with our Director, Peter. Please email volunteer@foodforalldc.org for more information.

We do our best to get as many drivers as we need and not more than we need. It’s an imperfect system — some people who sign up don’t come, some people who don’t sign up do come. Occasionally, we have to turn away one or a few drivers . Please know what when that happens, you showing up was not a waste! We never know when we’ll be a few people short. Thank you for understanding, and please do come back the next Saturday!

Meantime, for the best chance to drive, arrive between 8:45 – 9:00 a.m.

All first-time volunteers 18 and over must register and sign a waiver (once only).
