Meal Server Volunteer
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 90-100 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. Should you have any other questions, email Kelly Wallace; email@example.com.
