Food Service Volunteer

Our clients just need authentic friends. When serving a meal, you may: Help with last minute meal prep and room set up; Politely interact with guests as they come through the food line and fill their plates with food; As the line dies down, you are encouraged to join our clients at the meal table and interact with them; Help with minimum clean up, as necessary. Meal Friend’s simply come in and eat a meal with us and interact with clients. No agenda other than to use the meal as an excuse to interact and love on people.
