Without our amazing donors, our mission would not be complete.

We are still serving takeaway meals from our 5 dining rooms. Because of this, our dining room volunteer opportunities are more limited than they are when we can allow dining in, but we have an ongoing need for volunteers in our central kitchen in Pittsburg. We also have weekend opportunities in both Martinez and Pittsburg. Please contact the Volunteer Manager at for updated information.

Volunteers are a valuable resource to Loaves and Fishes of Contra Costa. Your volunteer service enables us to fulfill our mission of nourishing lives!

Please download and read our Volunteer Policies and Waivers document, to learn more about our volunteering guidelines.
