- A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
1 person is interested
A hot and nutritious meal is offered each evening for the men and women in our shelter. These meals are in large part provided by generous community groups and organizations that want to give back to their less fortunate neighbors.
Where: Dwight Way Shelter, 2140 Dwight Way, Berkeley, 94704
When: Approximately 5:00pm-8:00pm, 7 days/week.
Note: This is an opportunity for groups only.
For this volunteer opportunity groups purchase and bring food for the meal, prepare it in our fully equipped kitchen for up to 75 shelter residents, and serve the men staying in the shelter that night, and clean up afterwards (the women are served on a separate floor, volunteers may be asked to help serve there as well).
Volunteers generally arrive around 5:00pm and depart around 8:00pm, with the meal being served at 7:00pm. It’s perfect for about 5-8 people per group (more than 10 will not fit in the kitchen), and we highly encourage our volunteers to socialize with and get to know the residents during the evening.
