Is there parking? Yes. There is limited parking in the lot and lots of free street parking in the area.

When to go: You will want to arrive on-site at the time of your scheduled shift. If you cannot remember the shift time that you registered for, you can look for your shift confirmation from Universe or email volunteer@theworldisfun.org. If you arrive late for your volunteer shift, we may not be able to accommodate you.

How to find us: Upon arriving at the building, go to the door located on the left. Your TWIF Lead will meet you just inside the door. If they are not there, please wait patiently as they may be escorting other volunteers in.

TWIF Lead: We have a TWIF Lead at every event to lead the volunteer group. They will be your go-to person for everything you need during the event. 

What to bring: You must have proper identification with you to volunteer. A water bottle and a snack are also never a bad idea. This event does not have any secured storage so please only bring what you can carry on your person.

What to wear: Since you will be handling food, please wear clean clothes that you are not worried about getting a little bit dirty. You should also have a shirt with sleeves (long or short), closed toed shoes and have your hair tied back. Lifelong will provide you with an apron and cap to wear upon arrival.

Will we be inside or outside? Inside

Can I bring a friend? We still need volunteers for this event and we would appreciate any efforts you make in helping us find more volunteers. Feel free to tell your friends and co-workers - just make sure they register for a shift here

How does this help?  Chicken Soup’s clients have specific health challenges, such as HIV, diabetes, kidney disease, cancers, or disabling arthritis. Most are living below the Federal Poverty Level, and all require assistance in managing their nutritional health. Chicken Soup offers a comprehensive food and nutrition program designed not only feed people but to nourish them. The food that you prepare during your volunteer shift will provide this food for those who need it.

Perks: Snacks are provided.

Age Requirement: 18+

Training: Our team will be there to show you everything you need to know upon arrival!
