Prepare and Serve Dinner to Homeless Youth and Young Adults

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: New Horizons Ministries

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 49 people are interested

Serving a prepared dinner to youth and young adults (18 - 25 years of age) experiencing homelessness. At New Horizons, food group volunteers prepare or order dinner meals seven days a week.

By becoming a food group, you have the opportunity to partner with us, providing the consistency of a hot, home-cooked meal to the youth and young adults while they also receive resources and access to services designed to help lead them towards housing. As a food group volunteer, you and up to 5 others will prepare a meal of your choice for approximately 30 individuals either in-house at our New Horizons commercial grade kitchen (preferred), or from your own home to drop off at the shelter at dinner time. For volunteers wishing to prepare in house, you may arrive as early as 5pm, finishing up by 8:30pm. For volunteers opting to drop off meals, we ask that meals are dropped off by 6:45pm. Dinner is served between 7:00pm - 8:15pm.

If you are not interested in providing a meal, we are also looking for volunteers who would like to serve dinner. When meals are dropped off by food groups, volunteer servers are needed. Serving time would be between 6:00pm - 8:30pm.

Currently, everyone in the facility, including staff, young adults, and volunteers are required to wear a mask, except when eating or drinking a beverage. We are currently requiring volunteers who are in the facility for longer than 15 minutes to provide proof of vaccination.

If you have any questions, please reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator, Rodney Scott ( or call 206.374.0866) so we can give you more detailed information on this volunteer opportunity.

Thank you for your interest in supporting New Horizons!

About New Horizons Ministries

Mission Statement

New Horizons Ministries is a multi-cultural organization whose mission is to be in relationship with homeless and street-involved youth, serving and loving in the way of Jesus, equipping them to leave street life.


New Horizons Ministries began in 1978 in response to the growing number of homeless adolescents living on the streets of Seattle. What started as a program of street outreach has evolved over the years into an entire continuum of care, with an emphasis on relationship building.

The staff of New Horizons, both paid and volunteer, establish relationships with youth through street outreach as well as by providing meals, clothing, and other emergency services. New Horizons also provides case management, relational counseling, recreational activities, job mentoring, life discovery classes, and a comprehensive referral system. All of these services are designed to equip youth with the life skills, confidence, and sense of community that are vital for them to successfully exit street life.
