Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, FOCUS Detroit is limited in its volunteer opportunities. As the warmer weather is coming we are working on getting creative opportunities with which we can engage our network of volunteers and serve our neighbors in the safest way possible!

We are currently looking for parish, family, business, or other groups to help on Saturdays. The program runs from 10am-2:30pm the 1 & 3 Saturday of every month. Volunteers help to set up, pack lunches, sort grocery items, distribute meals, etc.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, volunteers are asked to use their discernment and best judgement in coming to serve with us. We kindly ask you to stay home if you are feeling ill or have had exposure to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

All volunteers are required to properly wear a mask at all times, wash and sanitize their hands throughout the program, and wear gloves when handling food.

FOCUS Detroit is teaming up with The Arab American and Chaldean Council (ACC) to distribute fresh food to the community!


Packing food will start around 8:30 (or as soon as the food is delivered) and will be distributed when ready (approximately 10 AM); volunteers may be needed until 1 PM.

Gloves and sanitizer provided; masks will be available on site. 

Waiver must be signed (available upon arrival). 


Physical restrictions include, but are not limited to:

Standing for an extended period of time

and the ability to lift boxes (approximately 25 lbs).
