One of the most beautiful aspects of Angelica Village is the meals we share throughout our community. In many cultures, sharing a meal is more than eating. It is a time of fellowship, catching up with family and friends, and most of all creating memories. Community Meal is a time when all members of our community come together - large community meals happen twice a week; Thursday and Saturday.
If have a passion to cook, we would love to share a meal with you! Volunteers are responsible for preparing and bringing the main dishes for the meal. Also, volunteers will oversee set up and clean up for this time. We welcome and encourage you to join the meal as well! We would enjoy getting to know you better. Angelica Village believes that through active community engagement you will receive what you give and there is no better way than enjoying the fellowship that a meal provides.
Volunteer(s) must be ready to serve between 10 - 30 individuals giving on the day.
Typically, we feed 10 - 15 members on Thursdays and 20 - 30 members on Saturdays.
Meal hosts are welcome to cook food in our home at Angelica Village or may choose to bring it already prepared.

About ANGELICA VILLAGE
5455 W VIRGINIA AVE, LAKEWOOD, CO 80226, US
Through love, care, and sustained mutual support, Angelica Village nurtures conscious community living spaces where people with special abilities, families seeking refuge from war and violence, individuals and families experiencing homelessness, and fellow community partners receive what they need and share what they can.
Children and Youth Seeking Refuge from War: Youth are welcomed into the community as long-term community members and as the 'adoptive’ children of partners responsible for their direct care. Children grow up in the community until they are ready to transition fully into adulthood. Children will be supported socially, emotionally, spiritually and physically, as well as with education and generally adjusting to life in the United States. Once children have moved out of the direct proximity of the home they will continue to have the community as an extended family for their future.
Unaccompanied Youth and Families Exiting Homelessness: The community provides a place of refuge and support for three to five individuals and/or families whose circumstances have put them out on the street. This aspect is aimed at individuals who are wanting to engage in a larger community and parents who are working to create a stable environment for their children and are seeking support and guidance in their efforts. Households live in the immediate community for eleven months to two years. During this time, they are provided with comprehensive support including food, shelter, a therapeutic environment, emotional support, childcare, financial support, help finding employment, educational support and assistance finding and furnishing a permanent home. Once families resettle in a new home, they will remain integrated and supported by the community for as long as they desire.
