Current Volunteer Opportunities

If you enjoy working outdoors and want to share your passion for gardening with others, this is a hands-on opportunity to help address food insecurity by providing community space for members to grow their own food. As a Cultivator, you will help plant and maintain gardens, and participate in seasonal group activities that help connect our community to urban food production.

Every Wednesday and Friday, we will be chopping, slicing, dicing, smashing, peeling, storing, and packaging food items for our Community Harvest Meal Distribution program! If you enjoy being in the kitchen, you could be helping us create these nutritious, delicious, and economical meals for food insecure households. We’ll be working from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. beginning Wednesday, May 8th. Join in for part or all of the morning, and become a part of our mission in action!

The Connector at the Food Hub will be the first person our visitors see! You will have the opportunity to interface with members of our community and guide them through their visit, whether that will be offering them further community resources, helping them book a space for an event, or giving a tour of the building!

Help us maximize our impact with some behind-the-scenes work that keeps our organization running smoothly. In 2019, NMEP is aiming to collect impact data for at least 60% of 1500 people impacted. That’s about 100 surveys a month! By using your love for the details and ability to work independently, you could be assisting with projects that will involve converting survey data into electronic form, and digitizing other resources.

Be the host with the most! As a Relator, you’ll get to maître d’ the Community Table lunches put on by our Culinary Workforce Training Program. Students will be preparing delicious meals showcasing the skills they develop each week and presenting them as a formal lunch. You will get to set a formal table, greet guests and offer them a tour of the food hub, and facilitate stimulating conversations between guests and students.

Create a ripple effect by sharing information about No More Empty Pots’ programs and activities, and the many ways that community members can become informed and get involved. As an Ambassador, you could be tabling at farmers’ markets and resource fairs, teaching cooking demos, or reaching out to local businesses to increase awareness of our mission and community participation in our programs!
