ORGANIZATION: Father Joe's Villages

  • 90 people are interested



During the COVID-19 pandemic Father Joe's Villages had to shift from its traditional cafeteria-style meal service to providing meals for pick-up by unhoused neighbors. Volunteers are needed to support this effort by packaging food in to go containers and getting meals ready to be transported. Volunteers also assist in setting up the food for the next meal in their dining room.

Volunteer duties are not limited to one task and can include: packaging food in takeout containers, cleaning up the immediate work area, disposing of empty containers, and setting up the food serving area for the next meal.
