For over 18 years, Soupline Supper has gathered the Santa Cruz County community to raise support for people experiencing homelessness.  Student volunteers, corporate teams, faith-based groups, and kind-hearted individuals help make this important fundraiser a great success.

All volunteer positions include  food provided specifically for you during your Orientation/Training at the start of your shift (if you would like to enjoy the event as a guest in addition to your volunteer service, we request that you discuss it with our Volunteer Coordinator in advance of the event.)

If you’re interested in any of the positions below, please sign up here: https://www.volgistics.com/ex/portal.dll/ap?ap=1098254275


Our Volunteer Coordinator will confirm your position, availability, special skills, and additional instructions regarding the event
