What we're about

Serve KC makes volunteering simple, social & fun! Members can pick and choose opportunities that fit their busy schedules and interests without the pressure of an ongoing commitment. We host a variety of volunteer opportunities, collaborate with nonprofits all over the city and work together to accomplish the greater good. Join Serve KC to volunteer, help others and make new friends.

Our Mission: Serve KC is dedicated to creating an inclusive space for all people interested in volunteering by creating events that are easy to join, fun to attend and build our community. We utilize our time, talents and treasures to assist Kansas City nonprofits to accomplish their missions.

Harvesters - Food Sort

Needs a location

Space has been reserved for us from 6 to 8 PM at their warehouse location at 3801 Topping Avenue. We will be working in a warehouse sorting food donations so please dress casual and no open-toed shoes are allowed inside. This is vigorous work centered on teamwork.

As of July 7th, Harvesters now requires masks for all volunteers and staff, regardless of COVID-19 vaccination status. This is due to Jackson County, MO returning to "High" spread rate per CDC. Updates to this policy will be communicated.

** Please be firm with your commitment when you RSVP. Harvesters plans the work based upon the number of people we tell them we have going. If your plans change we understand, just please change your RSVP so someone else can signup. **

Please check in at the front desk when you arrive, then join us in the volunteer lounge. There will be someone on staff at the facility to show/instruct us on what they need done for that day.

Children ages 8 and older are welcome to attend provided they are accompanied by an adult. Please share this opportunity with your family, friends, and coworkers! You are allowed to bring up to 2 guests.

This is a great way to give back to the community as Harvesters is the area's only food bank. Their network includes over 620 nonprofit agencies including food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, children’s homes, etc. http://harvesters.org. Harvesters will always accept any food donations too so bring them with you when you come. Thanks for considering this opportunity to Serve Kansas City!

Micah Ministry--help feed and clothe our neighbors

Needs a location

Micah Ministry serves hundreds of people each Monday evening from 5:15-7:15. Come join us in helping our less fortunate neighbors.

Volunteers will help greet the guests, serve food, offer beverages, fill clothing requests and litter control. If there are enough volunteers, there may be the option to sort clothing.

Due to Covid, masks are required, if you forget your mask, one can be provided for you. The event is currently being held outdoors instead of inside the dining hall.

Parking is available across the street to the east, or on street parking. Please meet us in the parking lot behind the large church building and look for Kay or Morgan in the food serving line.

Age restrictions: Since only basic screenings are done for those we help, and in order to keep volunteers safe, those age 12-15 may work alongside an adult, those 16 and older may work solo.

We hope to see you there!
