Morning Food Prep 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Morning food prep volunteers make the soups and salads that we serve each week, prepare sandwiches for our guests to take with them when they go, chop up the vegetables that will be used in the main dish, and bag cookies or other donated treats.
Mid-Day Prep 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Whether making coffee, setting tables, helping to put together the evening meal, or writing out the menu, there are a range of preparations that go into a successful meal service. In this shift there is truly a job for anyone!
Dinner Service 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Dinner service volunteers help plate our meal, serve and seat our guests, and clean up when the evening is over. This is both our fastest paced and most popular service opportunity. If this is your first time, please arrive to the church by 5:00pm for a brief orientation.
HELP WITH SUPPLY RUNS
We often need assistance with supply runs, some of which are flexibly scheduled. If you have a car available and can lift 20 lbs or more and would like to help in this capacity, contact the Program Coordinator here for details!
