SUPPORT Volunteers

Poverello House welcomes anyone with a heart to serve. Hundreds of community volunteers assist the staff of Poverello House daily.

Because Poverello House provides 1,200 to 1,400 meals a day, much of the volunteer activity is centered in the kitchen. However, there are also other activities that many volunteers do. The following is a partial list of volunteer service activities available at Poverello House:

  • Serving meals to the homeless at breakfast, lunch or dinner
  • Helping with food preparation, such as cutting meat and vegetables and sorting food items
  • Putting together bag dinners on the weekends
