Food Distribution Volunteer Opportunities

Family Promise currently has a rewarding volunteer opportunity at our Walk-In Dinner Program in Hackensack. (Located at the Housing Health and Human Services Center, 120 South River Street).  

Volunteers pack up and distribute meals in the dining room to shelter residents and at the loading dock to food insecure community members. We are currently feeding at least 200 guests and need to schedule 8 volunteers every day.


  • Must commit to the entire 3-6pm shift.
  • Minimum age 18 years.
  • Light lifting, at least two hours of standing.
  • Hats and gloves are required; Bring or wear a hat. Gloves will be provided.
  • Program runs seven days a week.
  • Volunteers are scheduled at least one week in advance. You can volunteer once, several times or regularly – it is very flexible.

If you are interested in volunteering, email Beth your name, cell number, email address and available day/s: bethf9185@gmail.com
