Prepare & Serve a Dinner to Families

Prepare & Serve a Dinner to Families

Shelter dinners are a hands-on experience. Every group who has come has asked to come back. It is both humbling and eye opening. When providing shelter dinners, we do ask groups to provide all of the food and paper products needed for your particular dinner. We ask that the food be pre-made and brought to the shelter ready to serve. Please plan on serving approximately 200 individuals. We ask groups to arrive at shelter at 6:00pm to set up and ready to serve by 6:30pm. The Health Department is no longer requiring permits; however, they are strongly recommending that all food be prepared in a non-residential kitchen. For more detailed guidelines on preparing meals for our families and individuals please see the Health Department’s Food Safety Guide. We do not offer dinners on the weekends.

Adult To-Go Meals

Adult To-Go Meals

Thank you so much for your willingness to provide To-Go Meals for the single men at the Men’s Resource Center. Many of the individuals staying at the Men’s Resource Center may be away from the facility during meal times for a variety of reasons (they are employed, doctor’s appointments, job interviews, applying for an apartment) and your generosity helps us to ensure that everyone has a chance to eat. We ask for 30 to-go meals per day. Due to security and confidentiality concerns, groups will not be allowed to distribute the lunches to the individuals.
