Serving lunch at one of the Daily Bread soup kitchens is our most popular volunteer service position. Consequently, our Daily Bread serving calendar books several months in advance with church groups, large and small business teams, etc. If you're interested in serving a hot lunch to hundreds of neighbors in need, please submit a request below and our Volunteer Coordinator will follow up with you with date options.
Coronavirus/COVID-19 Precautions –
March 17, 2020 - We are open and need volunteers for the coming two weeks (March 23-April 3). As this health epidemic is rapidly-changing, we will post new updates on our website and social media. We continue to adjust our Daily Bread serving policy in-line with the latest CDC guidelines to serve in a way that best protects both our volunteers and clients. "Social distancing" recommendations are in place to separate volunteers and client traffic.
Clients are now being served via take-out only. Volunteers prepare meals inside the kitchen and Daily Bread staff distribute meals in "clamshell" containers to clients outdoors. Our usual policy it to not allow anyone who appears sick and is showing flu-like symptoms to come into the dining room. We can provide a meal for them in a way outdoors in a way that won’t impact others. Our volunteers always have glove and apron protection while our kitchens are always cleaned and disinfected each day.
Additional alcohol-based hand sanitizer is available and will provide an additional layer of cleaning and disinfecting of tables and chairs in the dining room. In West Orange Daily Bread, its smaller dining hall is closed to guests, and meals are served in “clamshells” to clients outside in the parking lot.
If your livelihood is not impacted during this crisis, and you are blessed to be in a position to make a contribution, please click on the "Donate Now" button at the top of this site.
