    Our team grows stronger when you join the line-up. Thank you for your interest and desire to help:

    JBJ Soul Kitchen
    Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Soul Kitchen! Volunteers are essential to making our mission at Soul Kitchen work and are the lifeblood of what we do. We have 2 types of volunteers: those in need and those who want to give back to their community. Please note that those who are volunteering work in exchange for a meal are our priority and will be given the available volunteer spots first. While we are excited about the number of people who want to volunteer to give back, we have a limited number of spots available and also try to reserve them for those who live in our community. We want to encourage everyone to volunteer in your own communities in order to make a difference in your town. You can also help by joining us for a meal, engage in conversation with those you are seated with and leave enriched by the experience of paying it forward.
