Hunger is experienced every day in every community across the country.  Volunteers play a critical role in ending hunger in the six towns we serve by giving their time and talent to support Loaves & Fishes.  We welcome you to explore volunteer opportunities with Loaves & Fishes by attending a new volunteer information session.

Please note we DO  have volunteer opportunities for students, however, we have an age requirement of 18 in order to participate in volunteer activities when clients are present.

Policy on Court-Ordered Community Service:  Loaves & Fishes cannot accept volunteers who are seeking Court-Ordered Community Service.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IMPORTANT CHANGE IN TIME FOR VOLUNTEER INFORMATION SESSIONS:
