How can YOU help? Volunteer.
One of the most crucial volunteer needs each week is for Road Warriors or drivers. These drivers are the life blood of Appetite 4 Life. They pick up the meals at our kitchen facility and hand deliver them to our clients. All of our drivers are volunteers. Delivering a route takes approximately 1 hour and routes are kept to less than 20 miles round trip. Deliveries are made on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays starting at 9 a.m. The last pick up time is 12 p.m. A4L maintains a roster of regular drivers as well as a relief fleet. If you would like to volunteer but cannot commit to a weekly delivery we can place you on the relief fleet list and you can drive a route when available.
A4L also needs drivers that are willing to make pickups of various donated items including bread and pastry, donated food and other items.
Culinary Kings at A4L work a variety of shifts in our commercial kitchen facility. We accept volunteers of all skill levels in the kitchen. From first time volunteers to accredited chefs everyone can find a way to help, our kitchen opens at 8 a.m. and closes at 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Culinary Kings help A4L staff perform a variety of tasks including packaging meals, cooking, food prep, cleaning, packing meals for delivery, cooking birthday cakes, and much more.
Our food pantry is run completely by volunteer staff, from picking up the food to manning the desk, stocking the shelves, or shopping for the food pantry at the food bank. The Food Pantry is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. for distribution to clients.
Are you a social media guru? Do you organize things that are already organized? Can you perform data entry at lightening speeds? Should your photographs be in an art gallery? Then we can use your skills. A4L operates with an extremely small administrative staff. This means that volunteers are always needed for a variety of tasks. Admin Avengers do everything from help us file, answer phones, update client services information, to coordinating fundraising events. The administrative volunteers are probably the most diverse group of volunteers.
