CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY - Fund a Meal Program

Join us for a rewarding experience: groups of 10-12 employees/volunteers help us serve lunch to the homeless/working poor, and your organization sponsors the cost of that day's meals through our Fund-A-Meal Program. This very rewarding, hands-on 3 1/2 hour program includes a tour and overview of Eva's antipoverty programs, the lunch service, a roundtable discussion about the experience over lunch provided by our chef, and plenty of photo opportunities and publicity on Social Media to say thank you for volunteering and for making a donation to Eva's Village. In order to serve more than 500,000 meals each year, Eva's is especially in need of donations to help cover the cost of food.

If your company would like to participate in this CSR Program please email our Manager, Corporate & Foundation Relations: Marie.Caliendo@EvasVillage.org.

INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTEERS

Eva’s Village invites volunteers to see firsthand what a difference we can make together, by serving lunch to the homeless and working poor members of our community. The Community Kitchen at Eva’s Village
provides nutritious meals to individuals in need, every day, 365 days a year. Our guests are served by kind-hearted volunteers like you - with dignity - seated at tables. If you would like to join our mission to feed the hungry, please email our Volunteer Coordinator: Angela.Vance@EvasVillage.org.
