  • Provide a Meal

    We depend on volunteers like you to provide meals for our guests. It is up to you to plan, purchase, prepare, and serve a meal to our 86 hungry guests. Dinner is served at 6pm nightly, and Weekend Breakfasts are served at 8:30am on Saturdays and Sundays. Contact us to schedule a meal service opportunity.
