Traverse City Community Meals



Are you looking for a way to give back to your community, help those in need, or perhaps even start a new family tradition?  Volunteers are always needed, and we welcome individuals, as well as families who volunteer together, or groups from work, church, etc. Complete the “email us” form at right and use the “notes” box to let us know when you are available to volunteer. There are many ways to give of your time :

  • Prep work (day before)
  • Set Up
  • Drivers to Pick Up Food
  • Delivery Drivers
  • Kitchen Help
  • Meal Servers
  • Table Hosts
  • Hall Monitors
  • Clean-up crew

Many hands make light work, so we welcome any and all who wish to lend as hand, even if it is just for an hour! Take a look at the flow chart below for a general idea of how the day’s activities will progress. You may sign up to volunteer using the form on this page; you can also call us at the number below.
