Volunteer Opportunities

COVID-19 Notice

For the health and safety of our employees and customers we are not running our regular volunteer programs, but may accept single persons that want to volunteer for special projects. If interested, let us know your skills and how you'd like to support the cafe. 



  At Take Root Cafe, we're always looking for new volunteers, whether it's for an hour in exchange for a meal token or if you want to volunteer weekly. Volunteer times are Tuesday through Saturday 10am-9pm. Email our Volunteer Coordinator at info@takerootkirksville.org or call us at (660) 956-4671

For groups interested in volunteering, we have the following options:

  • Day-to-day Volunteering: Sign up your group for a set weekly volunteer slot where you're committing to send 2-3 people every week to Take Root to help with dishes, greeting guests, bussing tables, etc. Busiest days are Fridays and Saturdays. -- Temporarily Unavailable --

  • Host a Fundraising Event for Take Root: We need to raise $50,000 more than what we receive from meal donations in the cafe every year. Host a fundraiser like a bake sale or fun event to help with our fundraising efforts.​

  • On-Call for Events and Outreach Opportunities: We'll be doing some door-to-door outreach and occasional events where we will need a large group of volunteers. Sign up to be on our list and we'll let you know when these events come up!
