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.
Meal providers are an essential part of Operation HOPE-Vista's success. No matter how a client's day has gone, they know they can count on a tasty warm meal before bed. They also see that the community supports them. These are both things that contribute to their successful return to independence. Meal provision is an excellent bonding experience for a group of friends, a civic club, a faith group or a businuess. There is a short Shelter Cookbook available to help generate a variety of ideas for meal preparation.
Provide a pre-cooked, nutritional hot meal for up to 50 clients and volunteers
Provide 2 gallons of milk and 1 gallon of juice
Once the clients have been served, we invite our volunteers to sit down and share a meal with our client families to gain a better understanding of who is homeless
