The Daily Bread benefits from the partnership of many non-profits, businesses, government entities, and individuals throughout Lenawee County.
Community Collaboration is more than just support:
we rely on YOU to maintain operations.
Volunteering at The Daily Bread can be a rewarding experience for individuals, families, groups and business colleagues. Children aged 8-14 are welcome with parent supervision. High school and college students who need volunteer hours are welcome to contact The Daily Bread.
Appropriate clothing: closed-toe shoes, baseball cap, clothes that you don't mind getting dirty, layers in colder months, nothing that is revealing.
While serving, you must wear a hairnet (if you didn't bring a hat) and gloves. Long hair must be tied back. Aprons are available.
Many patrons enjoy seeing new faces and interacting with volunteers.
