Meal Maker Vol Team

We now have a hybrid model of Meal Making! Individuals and groups needed to make or cater a warm meal and deliver to those requesting them staying at the Guest House. Some medical or veteran guests may join us for conversation and dinner in our Community Room. Those staying with us often spend long days in the hospital with their loved one or have outpatient treatments - a dinner they didn't have to make themselves would feed their stomachs as well as their weary souls. We have a kitchen stocked with cooking utensils and a double oven. Volunteers need to arrive by 4:00p, no later than 4:45p with dinner supplies or the catered meal. To-Go dinner bags are assembled and delivered between 5:30 - 6:00pm to guest's doors. Sit-down dinner is at 6:00p, after cleanup, you'll be finished by 7:30p. We have dinners for our guests regularly scheduled on *Tuesday or Thursday nights at the Guest House.

Menu suggestions for meals: Soup & Salad Nite, Beef Stew & Biscuits, Mac & Cheese with Rotisserie Chicken, or Pizza - think Comfort Food. We're open to your menu ideas. A great idea to get your team back together doing good. Please contact me if you're interested in joining us and I will send you the Meal Maker Criteria.

*We are now booking Tuesdays and Thursdays for the end of October and through December. We ask that all volunteers be healthy the day of the project. You will have your temperature taken and will need to wear masks while participating in this volunteer activity.
