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.
We are seeking volunteer teams and individuals to prepare and serve a Thursday or Saturday Food for Friends hot meal. If you are looking for an opportunity for your business, or as an individual to volunteer or want to gather a group of friends, we have a place for you to cook and serve. Preparation begins at 9:00 am and we serve at noon. Join a community of folks who love to cook for, converse with, serve and be served by the community around them. We are located at 530 W Fullerton Parkway in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
This is an excellent opportunity for people to volunteer in a fun, safe, environment, either on a regular or periodic basis. We open our doors to anyone who is in need of a hot meal, and are funded by donors and grants, with no Government assistance.
We ask that groups assist us as you prepare for your experience by conducting a canned food drive and bring with you so our food pantry, will be stocked for our guests.
Specific open dates for groups are as follows:
25th October 13th December 20th December
and various other Thursdays in the Winter and into 2019.
December 22nd December 29th February 23rd 2019 March 30th 2019 April 20th 2019 May 25th 2019
