one bistro is nothing without volunteers who give of their time and talent—the heart behind our mission.

While we continually pray for volunteers to help make good happen in the community by being the hands and feet of Jesus, all are welcome regardless of faith. Our volunteers fall into two categories:

  1. Those who volunteer in order to provide a meal for themselves and/or their families.
  2. Those who volunteer to help as staff and assist in providing meals to those in need.

We benefit from the time and talent that our volunteers have to offer. Volunteers must be age 15 and above. Anyone under age 15 may serve with adult supervision, however, the adult must contact Manager prior to signing up online (Miamisburg: 937.859.1165 | Xenia: 937.736.2358). For every 2 children under age 15, 1 adult must be present. Tasks for under age 15 are at Manager’s discretion. Prior to volunteering, please review and sign the following policies, and turn in when volunteering for the first time.
