Volunteer Opportunities

Enfield Loaves and Fishes provides hospitality to all those in need by offering meals, aid, and companionship at no charge. Our goal is to make a difference in the lives of individuals who live with food insecurity. We serve a hot meal 7 days a week with volunteer support.

Our volunteer hours are Monday through Friday, 11am to 5:30pm. We are not currently looking for weekend volunteers.

Prep (11am to 2pm): Work with our kitchen manager to sort through and properly store the donations for the day, and complete basic food prep such as making salads, cutting fruit, washing and cutting of vegetables, etc.

Volunteers clean the facility by sweeping, mopping, and sanitizing common areas. Other tasks come up throughout the day that we could use support with. There is always something new to do every day!

Serving (2:30pm to 5:30pm): We need about 3-4 people in the serving line. These individuals can help with providing trays, desserts, fruit, plasticware, salad, drinks, and/or dishing out the meal to our guests from 4pm to 5pm.

Dishwashing: We have a system that we will instruct you on for doing dishes per food safety regulations. Cleaning the serving area occurs from 5pm to 5:30pm.

We have a ‘giveaway’ room where our guests can take snacks, drinks, bread, and whatever else we have extra. It would be ideal to have 1-2 people in this room to monitor our guests and make sure that they are spreading the wealth with all who come to our facility.

We also have opportunities for back-up chefs and back-up drivers!
