Community Service Opportunities for First Time Volunteers in Mesa AZ

At Paz de Cristo, we help people struggling with hunger, poverty and homelessness.

Right this minute, there are hundreds of people—veterans, working poor, the unemployed and senior citizens—here in the Phoenix East Valley who face dire need. We give them relief by serving a hot, nutritious meal every night.

More than 50,000 meals are provided every month through our evening meal service and food box program. We rely on the support of volunteers like you to get food to those who are hungry.

Teams of twenty people prepare and serve a hot, nutritious dinner and then clean the kitchen afterward. Our Meal Coordinators make it easy for everyone to have a great time while making a real difference in people’s lives.

We would love for you join us either as an individual or as part of a group. Be sure to read through our Frequently Asked Questions so that you know what to expect. Then choose the date that works best for you and sign up for one of our volunteer opportunities in Mesa, AZ today.

We look forward to meeting you!
