We need volunteers to help at Emmaus House Soup Kitchen. We need about 8 volunteers to prep and serve breakfast, and then help clean and prep for the next day. Thursdays we assemble pack-out bags to disseminate on Fridays. Parking is on Bryan street.

This event is not kid friendly, mainly because they serve an unrestricted population of the homeless that can include registered offenders. They ask that everyone wear closed-toed shoes and comfortable clothes. Please read the guidelines provided by Emmaus House below:

1. Volunteers must be over 18 years old
2. Volunteers must wear close toed shoes in the kitchen at all times.
3. Eating in the kitchen is strictly prohibited, as it is a health and cleanliness concern.
4. Volunteers must wash hands upon entering the kitchen and as often as necessary throughout the service.
5. Volunteers must always wear gloves while handling ready-to-eat foods.
6. The kitchen belongs to the Executive Chef. All decisions regarding volunteer staffing, prep, food distribution, etc should go through her or the Director ONLY.
7. The clinic area belongs to the Clinic Supervisor. All decisions regarding laundry, showers and the client restroom should go through him or the Director ONLY.
8. Volunteers are welcome to take 1 (ONE) to-go plate with them after breakfast service.

Failure to respect these rules will result in being asked to kindly volunteer elsewhere. Their collective focus is on our clients, their health and wellness and the functionality of our operation. Please feel free to discuss these guidelines with the Director by sending an email to if you have any questions or concerns.
