Daily Bread hosts hundreds of volunteers who contribute more than 50,000 volunteer hours each year! We LOVE our volunteers! We hold a volunteer recognition event each year during Volunteer Appreciation Month where long-time volunteers are recognized for their tireless efforts advancing our mission. Throughout the year, we hold regular volunteer appreciation events and work to match volunteers with duties they love. If you’d like to learn more about becoming a volunteer, please read the information below and then email at Volunteer@dailybreadinc.org

Volunteer Opportunities include:

  • Fresh Start Team (Assisting with showers by providing hygiene items and clean clothes, sorting & distributing mail, sorting donations)

  • Special Events

Please complete the volunteer application form and we will contact you once we have availability. 


Because we are blessed with an abundance of volunteers, we have streamlined our volunteer process.
Here is some important information to know BEFORE you show up to volunteer:

  • Both one-time volunteers and recurring volunteers must complete a volunteer application form.

  • Once you complete the form, you will be contacted for a brief interview and scheduled for a volunteer shift(s).

  • Volunteers must be scheduled and may not “just drop-in” at any time.

  • Holidays, particularly Christmas and Thanksgiving are the most popular volunteer times. Please request volunteer hours on these days as soon as possible so that we may accommodate you.

  • Volunteers must agree to treat our clients with dignity and respect or they may be relieved of their volunteer duties.

  • All volunteers must sign a release of liability form and a confidentiality form before they can volunteer.

  • Volunteers must be 15 years of age or older (Holiday/Dignitiy Dining events are the exception)
