The Franciscan Center could not provide critically-needed services to people in need without the dedicated support of volunteers who share their time and talent in service to the poor and hungry citizens of Baltimore. A huge thank you to all who have served and continue to serve!

Join us Monday through Friday, from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., or Tuesday and Wednesday for dinner 5pm-7pm.  We seek groups or individuals to help us with food production, assembling pantry and toiletry bags, and assisting in our clothing department.

Occasionally we need volunteers for special events such as our food distribution (bi-monthly), Annual Gala, Halloween party, Christmas party, Wine festival, and other fundraisers.

All FIRST TIME volunteers and anyone  interested in administration volunteering or specials skills such as cooking, we have special project and Guest Chef opportunities. Please inquire with our Volunteer Coordinator at
