Meet Up and Chow Down Volunteers 2024

Meet Up and Chow Down is not possible without the help of volunteers!

Volunteers are needed this summer at the following sites:

Yellow finger with click marks, text reads Click the site name for full list of volunteer needs

What to expect: Volunteers pick up coolers at a designated location in their community, transport coolers to Meet Up and Chow Down site, set up Meet Up and Chow Down signage, distribute and track lunches, and return materials to the pickup site for the next day's volunteers. All-told, expect about 1.5 hours/day.

The program is Monday through Thursday weekly. For site consistency, please consider selecting one day per week for the summer if you are able. A basic training which takes about 30 minutes has to be completed prior to volunteering. 

Thursday Meet Up and Chow Down volunteers will be joined by Summer Buddy Backpacks volunteers who will bring additional food for children to take home for the weekend.
