Volunteer Roles


In groups of 7-10 people, you will fill meal bags, weigh them, seal them and stack them in boxes.

Pack Master:

Train, organize and supervise packagers at packaging stations, help with setup and clean up. Prior training with MftH staff is required. If you’re interested in attending training, contact us.

Bucket Brigade:

Refill rice and soy bins, restock vitamins and vegetables, help with setup and clean up. Does require a fair amount of lifting.

Event Greeter:

Welcome visitors, check in all volunteers, hand out hairnets and beard nets and answer questions. You may leave after the packaging event starts or you are welcome to stay and package.


On Mondays and/or Thursdays, wash tubs, funnels, spoons, etc. from the packaging shifts. A maximum of three people are needed per day due to limited space.

Offsite Labeling Coordinator:

Take boxes of bags and labels to senior living facilities in the metro area and oversee the labeling events (1-2 hours in length). Must have reliable transportation and be comfortable lifting 30 lbs. All events have already been organized by the Volunteer Coordinator. If interested, contact us.
