Soup kitchen operating since 1984.  Prior to Covid, we served hot lunches on Monday and Tuesday of each week.  Since Covid, we serve bagged lunches the same two days.

Our goal is to establish a solid base of volunteers and cooks for each day and begin serving sit-down, hot lunches as we did prior to Covid for over 100 guests per day.

Volunteers Needed:
  • Anyone with food preparation or cooking experience, or experience working in a cafeteria or kitchen environment would be a valuable asset. 
  • Hours and days are flexible.
  • Make sandwiches, bag items such as chips, cookies, bagels, etc. (Mondays and Tuesdays).
  • Cook hot meals for 100 to 140 people per day.
  • Work on serving line, helping guests select items for their lunch.
  • Teen Opportunities: all of the above.
