Volunteering

Stone Soup Corvallis, Inc. can only thrive with volunteers. Now that the kitchens and dining rooms are opening again, we need volunteers to serve meals and beverages, do dishes, and set-up and clean-up.  We also need volunteers to support the administrative tasks of Stone Soup Corvallis.

All volunteers must be fully vaccinated and masks must be worn indoors. Stone Soup is asking all volunteers to be mindful of COVID-19 risks so no one brings COVID-19 into our spaces. We cannot guarantee the safety of our volunteers. Jobs are available for those who choose not to work in the kitchens. 

Volunteering at a Meal Site

Short- and long-term commitments or one-time opportunities for volunteering are available. Each of the following sites has a volunteer available to explain your job duties.

  • First Christian Church: Meals are served on Tuesday (dinner), Saturday (brunch), and Sunday (dinner). 

  • St. Mary's Catholic Church: Meals are served on Monday (dinner), Wednesday (lunch), and Friday (lunch). 

  • First Congregational United Church of Christ: Meal is served Thursday (dinner)

  • Third Street Commons: Meals are served on Tuesday (dinner), Thursday (dinner) and Saturday (brunch) through August 2022.

To volunteer, send an email to Andrea at stonesouphelp@gmail.com

Andrea will try to match you to an opening and send you information about job duties and safety protocols. During COVID-19, we welcome on-site adult volunteers 17 years and older who are fully vaccinated. Vaccinated youths 14-16 years can volunteer with a parent or guardian. Volunteers are also needed off-site in the administrative aspects of Stone Soup Corvallis, Inc.
