Serve A Meal

Helping the HUNGRY, Homeless and Hurting

There are hundreds of men and women experiencing homelessness on the streets of Philadelphia. Tackling the crisis of homelessness can be a daunting and overwhelming task, but by helping to serve a meal you can begin to change lives.

We invite you to serve as an individual or with a group, and be a part of the fight against hunger and homelessness. It doesn’t take much to make a difference!

Volunteers must be fourteen years or older, willing to serve for approximately an hour, and have the ability to stand on their feet for the duration of a shift. Volunteers are expected to assist with meal service preparations and remain fifteen minutes after service concludes to help with cleanup.

Lunch service is from 12:00 AM to 1:00 PM Monday through Saturday
Dinner service is from 6:30 PM to 7:00 PM Monday through Saturday

If you are interested in more volunteer opportunities then please visit our Volunteer Job List for a complete list.  Feel free to contact our Volunteer Coordinator with any questions or to schedule a larger group by emailing
