Volunteering at The Aliveness Project is fun and has a huge impact on the lives of people living with HIV in Minnesota.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Aliveness Project. Our passionate and devoted volunteers are an important part of our ability to feed our neighbors living with HIV. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available.

Join a thriving kitchen team preparing on-site made-from-scratch meals in our community kitchen or help our members access nutritious groceries from our food shelf. Every aspect of our operations is made possible because of the incredible dedication of our volunteers.

Maybe you are part of an organization or an individual wanting to make a difference, we are here to help you find the perfect fit for your skills, interests, and availability.

"Aliveness is a great community to be part of. As a volunteer, there are tons of great opportunities for me to give back to a community I care about. I know that what I am doing is making a difference, and the members and staff remind me of that every time I'm here.”

– Reed | Aliveness Volunteer
