Volunteering at Bread for the City
Whether distributing groceries, assisting with health education, or sorting clothing, Bread for the City depends on our network of dedicated individuals to make sure we can help as many people as possible.
Most of Bread for the City’s volunteer opportunities are appropriate for regularly attending individual volunteers who make a weekly commitment for an extended period of at least 3 months.
In order to join our volunteer roster, individuals must be able to do the following:
- Work one shift weekly or biweekly, either 9:00am-12:00pm or 1:00pm-5:00pm, Monday through Friday (excluding Friday afternoons).
- Make at least a 3-month commitment to their shift, to ensure a stable environment of service for our clients.
- Be at least 15 years old if accompanied by an adult, or over 18 years if alone.
- Be able to provide their own transportation to either of our centers, located at 1525 7th Street NW, Washington DC 20001 or 1640 Good Hope Road SE, Washington, DC 20020.
If you meet these requirements, attending one of our volunteer orientations is the next step towards working with us! Our next orientations are scheduled for 12 – 1pm on Wednesday, May 29 at our Northwest Center (1525 7th St NW) and from 1-2pm on Monday, April 1; and Monday, May 20 at our Southeast Center (1640 Good Hope Rd SE). Pick the one that best fits your schedule! We will discuss the volunteering basics and some of the positions we have available. You don’t need to bring anything but yourself!
