We depend on volunteers like you to provide meals for our guests. If you are interested, meal service involves planning, purchasing, preparing, and serving the meal of your choice to our 86 guests. If preparing a full meal is not possible, we also accept hams, turkeys, casseroles and meals that can be refrigerated and preserved for nights when we do not have groups serving dinner. Nightly Dinners are served at 6:00 pm, and Weekend Breakfasts are served at 7:00 am on Saturdays and Sundays.
Come volunteer with us at our Cream City Gardens! Gardening is a fun activity for groups of all sizes and ages, and positively impacts our community. Our garden is nestled in the heart of King's Park, which is classified as a food desert, meaning that there are zero grocery stores within a square mile. Our gardens provide fresh, home-grown produce to the Guest House, our neighbors, and the Friedens Community Ministries network of food pantries. Not only do we produce healthy food, but our gardens have transformed once-vacant lots into a healthy and active urban farm. Cream City Gardens touts 56 raised garden beds and a half-acre of in-ground planting rows. Urban agriculture at its best!
We work to combat food insecurity in our immediate neighborhood by handing out 300-500 sandwiches daily. Anyone who is hungry may come to our door and receive sandwiches. Making sandwiches for our community is a great way to get involved with Guest House, our surrounding neighborhood and have a real, immediate impact.
