Meal Server Calendar

Volunteers cook and serve meals each day throughout the year! The number of volunteers needed will depend on the way you serve and the meal you serve. If you are volunteering for the 11:30 meal, you will only need 8-10 volunteers to plan and serve the meal. If you are bringing the food or serving only, you will need 6-8 volunteers. If you are volunteering for the 4:00 meal or 7:30, you will only need 5-7 volunteers to plan and serve the meal. If you are bringing the food or serving only, you will need 4-5 volunteers. We have an 11:30 am lunch meal, 4:30 pm Day Shelter meal, and a 7:30 pm dinner. The lunch, day shelter and dinner meals are served 7 days a week, The number of meals depends on the time of service. The lunch meal averages 100-125 people. The Day Shelter meal averages 60-75 people. The dinner meal averages 75-100  people. These numbers also vary according to the weather. Warmer months we generally serve fewer while colder months the numbers are a little higher.
We offer three ways to help serve the meals. Many volunteer groups bring their own food, while others choose to prepare food that has been donated to the shelter. We also offer a “serve only” where volunteers come and help serve food that has been prepared by other volunteers. You are free to choose what works best for your group. If you choose to prepare your own meal, just call ahead of time to get the “current number of people” that you should plan on cooking for.
Each cooking group is different, but, we would suggest that you have at least 4 people available to prepare, cook and serve. Our average group size is typically 6-10. The calendar below lists all CURRENT AVAILABLE TIMES THAT YOU COULD SERVE A MEAL! Meals are served seven days a week by our volunteer groups! You can serve by planning a meal using food stored in our pantry, or by providing your own food.

Lunch is served daily at 11:30 am. (Serve on average 125)
Day Shelter meal (a light meal) is served at 4:00pm daily. (Serve on average 60-75)
Dinner service is at 7:30 pm daily. (Serve on average 90-100)

If you are going to use the ingredients we have, plan on coming a couple of hours before service. If you are bringing the food prepared, arrive approximately an hour before service. It is always wise to call ahead to double check with the staff regarding our latest counts for our meals. They change throughout the year.
