InnVision Shelter Network provides shelter and services for homeless families and individuals on the Peninsula. IVSN's largest family shelter located in San Mateo, is in need of groups from the local community willing to provide and serve a meal (Saturday or Sunday dinner). This is a great hands on way to help feed the hungry right in your community and provide a meaningful and critical service for people in need on the Peninsula.

The dinner can be a simple as a pizza party, a potluck a couple pans of pasta or in good weather, there is the option to host a BBQ for the shelter. The need for this service is great as IVSN is looking for providers for every Saturday and Sunday 52 weeks per year. There are a total of 39 families at this facility. A group providing the meal needs to provide the dinner for all residents. The group members are encourged and welcome to bring enough so that they may have dinner with the residents too.

School age children are welcome to attend with their families as part of the group. Activities for kids are encouraged either before or after the meal.

If you are interested in getting involved please contact Lynnelle Bilsey, Shelter Network Sr. Manager, Volunteer Progra s at (650) 685-5880 ext. 125 or via email at If you would like more information, please go to and review our online manuel for Meal Providers on our website.
