No act of kindness is ever too small and nothing says “love” quite like a well-made sandwich.

Do something big by doing something small. Start a sandwich team and watch your impact grow.

This is a great project for volunteers who want to help but might not feel comfortable helping onsite or in a shelter environment. This is a project that works well for church groups, service organizations and friend groups.

Each volunteer or group would be responsible for supplying their own materials.

Volunteers can make sandwiches offsite (at home, at church, etc.). We ask that the delivery container include labeling such as a basic ingredient list, the date sandwiches were made, and the type of sandwich.

How to get started
