Breaking Bread and Building Community
Sharing meals builds social bonds. Without our volunteers, many of our neighbors would be eating in situations that are anything but welcoming or pleasant.
At Not Bread Alone, we enjoy family-style meals in a nurturing environment. It’s a place to relax, refuel, and connect with others in our community. Every generation, from kids to seniors, is represented.
Some volunteers come in once a week, others twice a month, and others just on occasion. You can help with a range of tasks such as setting up tables, chopping vegetables, cooking, serving, sweeping, organizing, and other needs.
We encourage weekend volunteers to sit down and enjoy a meal with our guests, which is often the most rewarding part of the experience.
