Volunteer as an Individual

The Market

There are many opportunities to serve at the Arlington EATS Market. Volunteers are needed to unload the delivery truck, pack food bags, deliver food, and process donations. Lifting items weighing 10-50 pounds may be required. All Market shifts currently take place at Saint John’s Church, 74 Pleasant Street (Office entrance).

Snack Preparation

Arlington EATS makes snacks available for any student who is hungry during the school day. Snack preparation includes packing school approved snacks. Please contact Natasha at nstrom@arlingtoneats.org to find out how you can help or contact the Snack Ambassador at your child’s school. Due to the pandemic, snack preparation opportunities are limited.

Vacation Week and Summer Lunch Programs

School vacations can be stressful for households who count on school meals to keep their kids fed. From serving food on the buffet line to restocking supplies, setting up the beverage center to taking out the trash, we need lots of help to make our February, April and Summer Vacation Lunches run smoothly.  Please contact Natasha at nstrom@arlingtoneats.org for information about volunteering for the Vacation Lunch Program. Due to the pandemic this program is currently on hold.
