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 and finish at 1:00 pm. 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.
