Our team of volunteers includes book clubs, service clubs, businesses, scout troops, church groups, neighborhood associations. But there is always more to do, and you could touch a heart that someone else may not have yet. Won't you join us at Dinner at Vinny's to make a difference?
Volunteering at Vinny's is an uncomplicated process.
You can just show up to serve any or every night of the year, or by calling ahead, arrange with 11 of your best friends to make sandwiches and serve the 400-600 guests who come through our doors! All hands and hearts are welcome!
A Typical Evening at Vinny's
At 4:30pm every night, volunteer groups bring 600 pre-made sandwiches to the St. Vincent de Paul Dining Hall at 437 W. 200 S. in Salt Lake City. From 5pm to 6pm, those volunteers join Vinny's staff in serving sandwiches along with a hot bowl of soup and beverages made at Vinny's.
Beyond that, volunteers socialize with our guests, after which there is some dishwashing and clean up. By 6:30pm, you are on your way home knowing the world's a better place for your effort.
