Volunteer opportunities abound at nourish.NJ!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with nourish.NJ! We are thrilled to be re-introducing volunteer orientations. Those interested in volunteering on-site must attend our current orientation in order to be eligible for on-site volunteer opportunities, including those that have attended past volunteer orientations. There are a few things volunteers should know before attending orientation. Please see below before signing up. We can't wait to see you soon!

-We require volunteers be fully vaccinated (including a booster)

-The minimum age to volunteer is 16

-We do ask volunteers to sign a COVID waiver

-At this time we are still requiring a COVID symptom questionnaire (this is filled out each time you volunteer)

-Masks are required while volunteering

-We are currently using volunteers M-F between the hours of 9:30 and 6:00 (so no weekend options at the moment)

There are also many off-site volunteer opportunities to get involved in. Check them out below!
