Volunteer with The Bed & Bread Program

Volunteers can either work in the kitchen or on one of our trucks.

Kitchen: Monday - Sunday from 8am - 11am.

Volunteers will work with Chef Michael Block to make sandwiches that will later be served from the trucks. This is a good team building experience as a friendly competition has been created between each group that volunteers. The most sandwiches made in the 3-hour time period is 1,400. Your team members will create a sandwich making system to ensure you can produce as many sandwiches as possible during your shift.

Truck: Monday - Sunday from 11am to 6pm.

Volunteers will work with Mittie Hatcher. There are three trucks total that can fit up to four people including the driver. The drivers are assigned by Harbor Light and are usually people who have benefitted from the Bed & Bread program and now give their time back to the Salvation Army and people of Detroit. Once volunteers are divided up and assigned to the trucks, you will begin prepping the meals by creating sack lunches, pouring soup into bowls, and juice into cups. If you cannot commit to the full 7 hour shift, you must have someone following behind with a car. The trucks stick to a tight schedule for the homeless people, so the truck will not be able to leave their course to drop you back off at Harbor Light. I would highly recommend sticking it out because this is truly an incredible, heartwarming experience. 

Arrival: Please arrive at 7:45am. The shift is from 8am to 11am.

Contact Mittie Hatcher at 313-361-6136 to schedule a time to volunteer with The Bed & Bread Program. Learn more about the program by clicking here.
