Volunteering

As an all-volunteer organization, we need people willing to help with food preparation, cooking, serving and clean-up after each meal. We also need volunteers to support other aspects of Stone Soup Corvallis, Inc.

Volunteering at a Meal Site

Short-term or one-time opportunities are available as well as long-term commitments.
  • First Christian Church: Meals are served on Tuesday (dinner), Saturday (brunch), and Sunday (dinner). They use many short-term volunteers who work from food preparation through clean-up.

  • St. Mary's Catholic Church: Meals are served on Monday (dinner), Wednesday (lunch), Thursday (dinner), and Friday (lunch). Crews at St. Mary's are typically organized into sub-groups: cooks, servers, dishwashers and 'mop & lock' personnel. Most crews have worked together for years and some come from faith communities.

Volunteering for Stone Soup Corvallis, Inc.

We welcome your interest and willingness to volunteer for Stone Soup. As indicated above, we need people willing to help with food preparation, cooking, serving and cleanup after each meal. We also need people willing to work behind the scenes, in record-keeping, purchasing, coordinating, organizing, reporting, communicating, gleaning, and on special projects. Our volunteers are all ages and from many walks of life. All have an important role in providing a free daily meal for our hungry neighbors, and all contribute richly to our community's awareness of its vulnerable citizens.

If you are interested in volunteering for other work at other times, email us and tell us your interest and/or skills:  stonesouphelp@gmail.com
