The nutrition team at Willmar Public Schools in Willmar, Minn., has put out a call for volunteers to help serve lunch to students as the district continues to face staffing shortages, the West Central Tribune reports.

Volunteers must fill out a background check. Once accepted, they are able to sign up to work a shift lasting three hour and 15 minutes, during which they would serve lunch to kids. All volunteers would be provided a free meal before the start of their shift.

Michigan State University in East Lansing, Mich., has also been relying on volunteers to help keep students fed this semester.
