Thanksgiving Volunteer Registration

UPDATE: All our Thanksgiving volunteer roles are now full. Please watch our website for Christmas registration beginning Nov. 5.

Thanks so much for your interest in volunteering this Thanksgiving! We need volunteers for these dates/roles:

  • Wed., Nov. 21 – Thanksgiving Food Donation Day: Help receive and sort thousands of Thanksgiving food donations from the community. (8 a.m. to 1 p.m.) This option is now full!
  • Thurs., Nov. 22 – Thanksgiving Day Onsite: Help package and serve meals, plus set-up, decorating, clean-up, etc. (9 a.m. to 2 p.m.) This option is now full!
  • Thurs., Nov 22 – Thanksgiving Day Meal Delivery Driver Team: Deliver meals throughout the Des Moines area to people in need. (9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.)* This option is now full.

Important Note: Volunteers must be 13 years old to serve on site. For families with younger children, serving as a meal delivery driver team is a great option!

*To serve as a meal delivery driver team, you’ll need a vehicle large enough to hold 25-40 paper sacks plus your own GPS. We’ll provide all your meal delivery addresses before the holiday so you can create your own route.
