Thank you for caring about hungry preschool-aged children!  Kids’ Meals utilizes 20 volunteers daily to prepare meals in our beautiful, centrally located kitchen and YOU can be one of them.  Volunteering is a blast!  While in our kitchen, volunteers play music, chat, laugh, dance, sing, have sandwich making speed competitions, and have a joyful time while making meals. We host groups of up to 40 (age 8+) from corporations, places of worship, schools, youth groups, sports teams, book clubs and everything in-between. 

Volunteer shifts are M-F, 9 a.m.-12, and one Saturday a month at 330 Garden Oaks Blvd (in The Heights). To volunteer, please use this link to register: https://kidsmealshouston.volunteermatters.org/ or contact volunteer@kidsmealshouston.org.
