We welcome our student volunteers needing to fulfill community service hours all summer long. Our summer volunteer calendar fills up quickly, so please call us in May and June to reserve your summer hours. You must call in advance to reserve your hours, we do not allow walk-in volunteers.
Lunch Break is open from 9:00 am - 2:30 pm during the week. We are open on Saturday mornings 9:00 – 12:00 p.m., but please note, we get booked on Saturdays months in advanced.
Ways to earn community service hours offsite
If you need to fulfill community service hours and cannot get on our calendar due to scheduling conflicts, please consider running a food drive on our behalf. We will gladly credit you with the hours you spend organizing a food drive.
Another idea we have for students needing to earn community service hours is for them to create a little ‘goodie bag’ for each of our lunch guests. They love finding surprises waiting for them on their lunch tray! First, come up with a theme for the goodie bag.
Some suggestions are:
- healthy treats
- dental hygiene, hair products, deodorant, soap, nail file and lip gloss
- book and healthy treats for children
- special holiday baskets
We would need a total of 150 bags. Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator first regarding what you plan to put in the bags and when you plan to drop off the bags. Unfortunately, we cannot accept home baked items in the bags due to Board of Health rules and regulations.
If you have any questions, or want to sign up to help, please call the Volunteer Coordinator, 732-747-8577 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
