Where to go: Ring the doorbell at the first door on the left when you’re facing the building. Your lead will be waiting for you!

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 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, however has cubbies available for your personal items while working in the kitchen.

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 clean bandanas and aprons.

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, and services to 1,600 people in the Puget Sound region, serving 162,000 meals. The food that you prepare during your volunteer shift will provide this food for those who need it.

Age Requirement: 18+

Documentation: Upon request, we will gladly supply you with documentation for your volunteer hours for work or school purposes. We do NOT, however, provide court documentation. We do not believe that volunteering is a punishment and under no circumstances will we provide documentation for court-ordered community service.

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