Seasonal: Summer Meal Program

We need an army of volunteers to help provide hot, nutritious meals for children as part of the Mobile Outreach Meals (M.O.M.) program. Volunteers are needed weekdays during the summer months at three different Fargo parks. Work with Salvation Army staff to set up, serve the meal and clean up. Interact with the children during the mealtime, with the option to stay after meal service to provide activities, such as teaching a sport, a craft, or playing an organized game.

The time commitment is one hour for meal service and two hours if staying for the activity. Volunteers must be over the age of 18 and are required to pass a background check. To sign up, call Kimberly Wagner at 701-356-2688.
