Meal Providers prepare or purchase enough food to feed 35 guests and then deliver it to the shelter between 5:30 p.m. and 5:45 p.m. Dinner volunteers are encouraged to stay and serve our guests directly from 6:00 p.m. — 7:00 p.m. If your schedule doesn't permit staying to serve, that's okay! You're more than welcome to drop dinner off, and our staff and Evening Volunteers will take it from there. Our Meal Providers are some of our most critical supporters, and our guests are incredibly grateful to have a hot meal to end the day.
Meals generally consist of an entrée, a side like chips or a salad, a fruit, and a dessert. Many guests prefer softer foods that are easier on the teeth, but there are no strict requirements for what you bring.
