Serve City Has a Place for You to Get Connected

Serve City's success depends on people like you who are willing to share your time, expertise and passion with your neighbors through us. 

For questions about volunteer opportunities, contact our Volunteer Services & Community Engagement Manager, Jeff Gambrell, at or call 513.737.8900 ext.107


If you are ready to volunteer, please fill out the volunteer application and liability form. All volunteers are required to participate in a volunteer orientation before serving to better understand our mission, practices and safety procedures. Once you have completed these steps, volunteers may begin signing up below for the opportunities that interest them.

* Serve City does not offer drop-in volunteer opportunities at this time. Please sign-up using the links below following registration.

Food Pantry

There are a few opportunities for volunteers seeking to assist in the Serve City Food Pantry:

During Open Hours - Volunteers assist by creating a welcoming environment, engaging with customers, and helping them navigate the space. Volunteer opportunities for this are Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday (9:30-11:30, 11:30-1:30, 1:30-3:30).


During Closed Hours - Volunteers assist in ensuring the shelves are stocked, the produce is gleaned and the space is clean & safe for our customers during the hours our food pantry is not open to our customers.

Become a Meal Sponsor

Are you a family, business, church, or nonprofit organization looking to make a difference in our community but don't have a lot of free time to commit? Consider becoming one of our dedicated meal sponsors today! Our residents are provided three meals a day through our shelter kitchen, and we rely on the generosity of our meal sponsors to prepare and serve many of the meals we offer. Interested in becoming a meal sponsor? Please email to sign up today!


Organize a Food Drive


A great option for schools, churches and community groups wanting to do more outside of in-person volunteering is by hosting a food drive through their associated organization. We are always seeking to replenish our inventory of non-perishable food items including canned fruits & vegetables, soups & stews, and so much more! Contact us today to receive a food drive poster personalized for your event. 

Become a Food & Housing Advocate

Over 40,000 of our Butler County neighbors live below the poverty line including 17% of Hamilton residents. That's families, children, seniors, and veterans depending upon services such as ours just to survive. However, you have the power to make a difference in your local community. Consider contacting your elected officials and let them know how important it is for organizations such as Serve City to receive public support and funding.
