Help Serve Dinner at a Shelter

This time we will be purchasing and preparing the entire meal to serve to 150 guests at Evangel hall!  The expected contribution from each person is $25 and tax receipts will be provided by Evangel hall.  We may also be able to get food donated, and will let you know if this is possible or if payment will be collected.

The Sunday dinners are a chance for people in need to have a home-cooked meal and enjoy community with guests and volunteers.  After making the meal, we will serve it to guests at their tables.  Tasks include serving food onto plates, to guests at their tables, and running things to and from the kitchen.

*** Please realize we need commitment from those who sign up.  If something comes up, please remove your RSVP in advance.  We are counting on everyone to help purchase and prepare the meal.  Thank you. ***

Schedule:

3:15 - 3:30:  Please be on time!  Arrive and meet other volunteers (come to the side entrance).  

3:30 - 5:00:  Prepare salad, main course and dessert

5:00 - 5:30:  Orientation - learn procedures on serving, assign tasks, receive tour of Evangel hall

5:30 - 6:30:  Serve meal, clean up as necessary.  We can eat there as well, with other members or mingle with guests.

** Limited free parking is available at the centre and there is also paid parking on Adelaide.

** Clothing, food and hygiene items are always welcome donations to the centre. 

Thank you in advance for your interest.  These Sunday meals would not be possible without volunteers like you!

    Thanks to everyone who came to this event! It was a great group to work with, nice to see our "regulars" and some new faces too :) We definitely pulled together a great meal! Special thanks to Ian - it was his idea to book a date and prepare the whole meal, and it worked out! I look forward to next time - will keep you posted on the next date :)
