Volunteer with CitySquare Food, formerly Food On the Move
Summer is here and we’re looking for volunteers interested in serving with CitySquare Food, our mobile summer meal program! In partnership with CitySquare AmeriCorps, the program serves free meals and provides educational programming in a day camp setting to anyone 18 years old and younger. Summer can be difficult for families when free and reduced lunch is not available at school. By volunteering, you’ll help ensure less kids go to bed hungry and more kids go back to school less effected by summer learning loss.
CitySquare Food will serve meals at 94 community sites throughout Dallas, Irving, Garland, and Arlington. If you’d like to volunteer, please complete a volunteer application. If you know anyone 18 and younger in need of a meal this summer, you can find all the mobile food sites here.
Saturday Morning Pantry Prep
To ensure our Food Pantry is ready each week, we need some extra hands on Saturday mornings from 9:30 am – 11:30 am. During our Saturday Morning Pantry Prep, you can expect to help with checking expiration dates, sorting through donations, stocking shelves, and managing inventory at the warehouse and more. Please click here to review available dates and to sign up.
Many corporations match employee donations (or the tax deductible component of your membership) to our organization. If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support. Check with your HR department to see if your company offers these programs.
