Description: 
Serving a meal in the Daily Free Meals Program is a transformative experience. This program requires 85 volunteers each day to fill the breakfast, prep, lunch and dinner shifts, 364 days a year. With your help we can serve approximately 2,000 meals per day to our community. Volunteers assist with everything from serving food, to bussing tables, to handing out silverware and condiments. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and make some beautiful human connections!
 
This year, we’ll be volunteering for the lunch shift from 11:30am-2:00pm. Our group is invited to stay for lunch, and while a donation of $2 is requested, no volunteer will be turned away for lack of funds.
 
Please arrive no more than 10 minutes before the start of our shift. When you arrive, you’ll be directed to the dining room. The dining room staff will show you to the lockers where a jacket and a small bag can be secured while you are serving.
 
Lastly, please wear comfortable clothing. Each volunteer is required to wear closed-toe shoes and shirts with long or short sleeves (No tank tops please!). During your volunteer service you will also be wearing a hair net (or cap if you bring one with you), plastic apron and plastic gloves.
