Family Dinner

Family Dinner is an opportunity for groups to build strong communities by providing a nutritious, family style meal for about 30 youth during Drop-In on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays..

All meals must be cooked prior to arriving at the house. Leftovers are always welcomed, as some of our youth are food insecure, and this helps to make sure that they have a meal to take home with them as well.

Volunteers are needed to:

  • Provide and serve a meal for 30+ youth
  • Provide all items needed to prepare and serve
  • Clean up after the meal; taking trash out, washing dishes, packaging leftovers into ziplocs and putting them in the fridge
