The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Do you love to cook? What better way to support our residents than to come in and cook a tasty meal! Preparing a meal shows the women and children going through this tough time that they have the support of the community and brings HOPE! Sharing your cooking skills is also a great way to lessen the load on our kitchen staff and budget and a homemade meal from your kitchen’s recipe collection is a wonderful treat for our residents!
The project includes menu planning, purchasing and preparing the meal, and clean-up.
Dinner groups can be scheduled weeknights or weekends:
Monday through Friday. we ask groups to arrive around 3:00 to prepare the meal. Dinner is served promptly at 4:30 and lasts until 5:15 pm.
Saturday and Sunday, we ask groups to arrive at 10:00 to prepare the meal. Lunch is served around 11:30am.
