We have several ways to partner with St. Mary’s Caring Soup Kitchen to fight hunger. You can help by donating time, money, food and other services.

We are in need of:

  • Substitutes to fill in on short notice to help prepare and serve meals
  • Third Saturday lunch volunteers between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
  • Cleaning
  • Maintenance
Volunteer applications may be picked up at our facility between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday-Friday. All prospective volunteers must attend an orientation prior to working. All food-service volunteers also are required to attend a St. Mary’s County Health Department Food and Safety course within their first 6 months. Certificates are good for two years.
We believe in the importance of children learning how to give back to their communities, however we do not accept volunteers under the age of 15. Teens ages 15 to 17 must be accompanied by an adult.
For children ages 6 to 17, please see our Operation No Starvation tab to find out about our junior volunteer program.
Please contact us at 301-863-5700 for more information.
