Serve a Meal

60number of volunteers needed in the meals program every day


Thank you for giving your time to feed the hungry! Serving a Meal is the most popular way to volunteer at GLIDE.

The Volunteer Resource Program places about 10,000 volunteers each year, totaling 65,000 hours of service. Serving a meal in the Daily Free Meals program is a transformative experience. The program requires 60 volunteers each day in order to fill the breakfast, lunch and dinner shifts, 364 days a year. And that doesn't even account for the increase in help needed during the holidays.  GLIDE has a NEW application to sign up for serving meals!
