Serve a Hot, Nutritious Meal at Loaves & Fishes

Elayne and Gracie, if you see this, please send me your contact info (full name, phone number and email address) ASAP.


Due to the overwhelming interest, I am scheduling a second event =)


Let's Serve a Hot, Nutritious Meal at Loaves & Fishes Family Kitchen

Loaves & Fishes Family Kitchen is committed to providing no cost, hot nutritious meals and support services in a dignified, safe and caring environment. We provide services to all needy individuals, with special concern for families, senior citizens and homeless.

We could be asked to help with all aspects of the meals, including (but not limited to) setting up the dining room for dinner, preparing the meal, serving and clean up.

As with all non-profit organizations, they are VERY dependent upon the volunteers so if you RSVP, please be committed to arriving on time and for the entire shift.

Must be 14 years or older.


If you would like to contribute by donating goods, they are looking for following items.  You can drop them at the administrative office (777 North First Street, San Jose, CA) or contact me and we can figure out how I can pick it up from you.

  • Canned goods
  • New, unwrapped toys for our Parent Toy Shopping Day in December
  • Diapers of all sizes




  • Pull hair back
  • wear closed-toe shoes
  • wear a top with sleeves
  • leave valuables at home - purse, computer, ipod etc.



Please complete the attached volunteer information form and bring it when you arrive for your shift.

You can use any open spot on the streets around the building, and there is a small lot behind the building off of Plaza de Guadalupe. Download parking directions.


Additional Notes:

- Update your RSVP as soon as possible so I can replace you if you can’t volunteer. I ask for 48 hours notice.

Getting a ride home? Please have someone there no later than 5:45pm.

      Unfortunately I think you'll have to make that call yourself (or call your doctor)...if you're no longer contagious or not. You may be working in close quarters in the kitchen serving food.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
