We are fortunate at Loaves & Fishes to have many wonderful and dedicated volunteers. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do!

Whether you come as a regular or on a one-time basis, your time and services are invaluable to our agency.

If you do not see an opportunity available that fits what you are looking for contact the Kitchen at 931-645-9020 or info@loavesandfishestn.org and we can help find you a place.

Group Volunteer Opportunities:

We regularly work with groups and likely have something we need a group for that we have not posted. These opportunities could be in the kitchen, the warehouse, or for special events.
Kitchen Teams:
From time to time we will have a kitchen team opening come available, These teams are volunteers who come in on the same day each month. Most teams consist of church members although a few teams are made up of individuals. The teams arrive at the kitchen by 8:00 AM and prepare a meal to be served between 10:30AM and 12:30PM. After the meal volunteers clean-up the kitchen for the next day.
