Meal providers make a significant impact on the work that Interfaith Works does for its clients. Our shelter programs rely on the continual support of volunteers to provide meals for our clients at our various locations. Currently three of our locations are in need of meal providers. The details are below:

Carroll House Men's Transitional Shelter in Silver Spring is home to 32 homeless men. Volunteers can provide a pre-prepared dinner for the men on any evening of the week. Dinner is served between 5:00 pm and 5:30 p.m. and we invite our volunteers to mingle with the men after dinner is served. Carroll House is always grateful for breakfast and bagged lunch donations as well.

Becky's House in Rockville is home to 8 elderly women who were previously homeless. Volunteers are welcome to come and prepare a meal at the home any evening of the week and serve dinner to the ladies as well as mingle with them. Volunteers may provide food to be prepared or use the food that is on site. The women enjoy visitors, especially those who cook a well-balanced meal! Dinner is served at 4:30 pm.

Watkins Mill in Gaithersburg is home to 8 women with disabilities. Volunteers are welcome to come and prepare a meal on site any evening of the week. Volunteers may bring their own food or prepare the food that is already on site. Just like the ladies at Becky's House, they also enjoy visitors and we welcome volunteers to stay and mingle with the ladies. Dinner is served between 4:00 pm and 4:30 p.m.

Providing meals to homeless individuals makes a great impact on their life by helping them stave off hunger which would otherwise not be avoided if they were forced to rely on their own limited resources to acquire food.

Every volunteer is required to complete an application and a brief interview prior to being assigned to this opportunity. Here is the link to our online application form:
