How to Volunteer
There are many ways to volunteer with Table of Plenty in Chelmsford! Below are the types of volunteer opportunities we have. Grab 'N Go meals are served every Tuesday from 4:30 - 5:30 PM at the Chelmsford Senior Center, located at 75 Groton Road (Rte 40) in North Chelmsford.

Please note that our volunteer needs are somewhat different now that we are serving Grab 'N Go meals during the pandemic (as noted below). Please
contact us about ways you can help.
Volunteer Hands
  • Weekly Meal Team Member: We current have 8 teams that come once every eight weeks to help prepare and serve the meal. Team members help with meal preparation, serving, and cleaning. To respect the dignity of our guests, volunteers who serve the meal must be high school-age or older. Please contact us about other ways for those younger than high school-age to help. (Team members currently help package and distribute Grab 'N Go meals from  3:30 - 5:30 PM on Tuesdays.)

  • Cooks: Love to cook? Then we could use your help! As a cook, help prepare, cook, and plate our weekly meal from 2:00 - 7:00 PM on Tuesdays. We welcome all experience levels, and we can work with any time commitment you would be able to make.

  • Set-Up Crew Member: Set up crew members arrive at 3:00 PM to wipe down tables and set them with silverware. Set-up takes about 45 minutes and requires a commitment of one Tuesday a month. (Set up crew not currently needed while we are serving Grab 'N Go meals.)

  • Clean-Up Crew Member: Help clean tables, sweep the dining area, wash the kitchen floor, and take out the trash after the meal from 6:00 - 7:00 PM on Tuesdays. We welcome teens to join a clean-up crew -- this is a great opportunity for those in need of service hours! Requires a committment of one Tuesday a month. (Clean up crew not currently needed while we are serving Grab 'N Go meals.)

  • Dishwashers: We can always use dishwashers on Tuesdays between 3:00 - 5:00 PM or 5:00 - 7:00 PM. Requires a committment of just one Tuesday a month for either time slot. (Dishwasher hours are currently between 4:00 - 6:00 PM on Tuesdays while we are serving Grab 'N Go Meals.)

  • Bread / Bagel Pick-Up Person: Pick up baked goods donated by local cafes and deliver to the Chelmsford Senior Center.

  • Shelter Delivery Person: Pick up leftover food on Wednesday mornings between 9:00 - 11:00 AM at the Chelmsford Senior Center and deliver it to the Lowell Transitional Living Center on Middlesex Street in Lowell.

  • Musicians: We welcome musicians to play or sing for our guests during the meal. (Musiscians are still welcome to perform outdoors weather permitting while we serve Grab 'N Go meals from 4:30 - 5:30 PM.)
You may also wish to consider sponsoring a meal. The cost of a meal sponsorship is $200, and you could share the sponsorship with family, friends, neighbors, or co-workers.  We also welcome business and organizations to sponsor meals. The reward is special, and the need is great.
