Volunteer Opportunities

There are many ways you can help.

If you want to work behind the scenes, for example in our administrative office please contact us to discuss opportunities. We are especially interested in volunteers who have skills such as document organizing, graphic design, inventory control or other work a small organization like the NLCMC needs help with. If this sounds like you, please reach out and share your interest with us.

Of course we have a need for ongoing volunteers for our meal service. These jobs also afford a chance to work with the the kitchen "team" and the public. A little bit more detail as follows:

Meal Preparation

This includes for example, turning donations of fresh vegetables into part of a meal, buttering bread for a dinner side, or portioning out desserts.

To Go - Meal Packing

Help us get meals out the door to individuals, families and partner organizations

Clean-up and Dish Washing

An essential part of every meal served

Why We Volunteer


I volunteer because the people that come to the meal center are having rough times, and it can happen to anyone. I feel it is important to help people who are less fortunate, and it is really important to treat people with dignity. We are not just feeding them. I get the satisfaction of knowing I am helping people.



I volunteer because I can. I had a life and a career where I was fortunate to do well. Now that I am retired I want to spend my time giving a step up in the simple form of a meal to someone who did not have all the advantages I have had in my life.



I volunteer because it is a way of giving back to all people who helped me throughout the course of my life. I do it to give back, to pay it forward. Also, I do get personal fulfillment that is wonderful. I feel good about volunteering.
