Thank You For Your Interest in Volunteering at

The Community Cafe!

Volunteers play a critical role in allowing us to live out our mission of improving food security throughout the Gallatin Valley. We appreciate ALL that our volunteers do to help the Community Cafe and all of its patrons. Without you, we’d be buried under a pile of vegetables!

If you are interested in volunteering with us, please take a look at our Volunteer Guidelines and scroll down to fill out a volunteer registration form. Once your form is submitted, we will be in touch to discuss your availability / interest and to match you to an open volunteer position. You will also receive a confirmation email, providing you with information about the next Volunteer Orientation. If for some reason, you are unable to attend the Orientation, please email Chelsea Eddy at ceddy@thehrdc.org to coordinate a better time.

And don’t forget – coming by for dinner and “paying-it-forward” for another patron is another great way to volunteer at YOUR Community Cafe!

Emergency Call List

When we don’t have enough volunteers for the evening service, we send out an emergency email (or phone call) asking folks on the list to come in for the night if they are free. The shift is from 4:30-7:30pm, Sunday – Friday (dinner is served from 5-7pm).

Yellowstone Theologic Institute – Evening Dinner Service Volunteers

Ideally, we have at least a week’s notice of when we will be short volunteers, but occasionally we may not realize it until 4:45pm that night! If you’d like to volunteer with us, but are busy during the day, this could be a great opportunity to get you into the kitchen serving your community members!  It’s a very rewarding volunteering opportunity but is also the most demanding of all of the volunteer opportunities we offer as you are on your feet for the majority of the time, and clean up can involve some lifting. 

Please contact Elizabeth Dillon at volunteer@cafebozeman.org if you’re interested in this opportunity.
