Without our dedicated force of community volunteers, Dutchess Outreach would not be able to provide the range of vital services necessary to the residents of Dutchess County.

Volunteers help us through all of our programs. From individuals, families, community groups, local organizations and businesses, school clubs, religious groups, and more, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities available.

Looking for a team-building opportunity to engage your organization? Make a difference in your community, volunteer as a group!

Please review our Volunteer Policy and Code of Conduct Manual and Lunch Box Handbook.

If you’re interested in volunteering at the Lunch Box, please watch This Lunch Box Volunteer Orientation Video prior to completing the volunteer form.
