About Metro Caring
At Metro Caring, we're meeting people's immediate food needs while addressing the root cause of hunger: poverty. We provide nutritious groceries to our neighbors, and also offer comprehensive anti-hunger resources so that families can stop hunger at its root.
Our Fresh Foods Market is at the heart of Metro Caring. Shoppers choose from an array of nutritious foods based on their dietary needs and preferences, and leave with a week's supply of groceries, including fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, dairy, and lean protein.
How You Can Serve
Volunteer Opportunities are available Monday-Friday. There are two shift times- 8:30am-12:00 pm and 12:00pm-3:30 pm. Volunteers are expected to volunteer for the full shift (3.5 hours)
Volunteers serve in a variety of rewarding ways. 500 weekly volunteers help us accomplish our mission through greeting participants, conducting one-on-one conversations to connect participants to resources, keeping our market and warehouse stocked and organized, and more.
Training requirements include attending an orientation which occurs on the 2nd and 4th Monday and Tuesday.
