Dinner Time!

HomePlate is a weekly drop-in program serving youth experiencing homelessness or housing instability in Washington County. We offer them a hot meal, a shower, games, conversation, and other resources on Thursday evenings in Hillsboro, .

Supplying dinners each week is our biggest need. Meals must serve about 30-45 people. Youth, volunteers, and staff all share this meal together.

This is an opportunity for a group of volunteers. We strongly suggest that you form your own group (friends, family, co-workers, teammates, etc.).

Dinner volunteers will prepare a main dish, a vegetarian version of that dish, and a beverage, juice, milk, water are all great options, but no soda please!
Dessert, bread, and salads are welcome but optional.
This is suitable for a volunteer group of 4-8 people.

Dinner groups purchase everything for the meal, cook it on site in our kitchens, and serve it to our youth. It's important to have one or two people who have a food handlers card as well. If you don't have a food handlers card we can help you get one online.

HomePlate connects homeless youth with a variety of resources, but it's the home-cooked meal that gets them through the door. Contact us today to find out how you can help!
