Serve a Meal. Make a Difference!

What is Glide? It is like an oasis (literally one of many homeless people who depend on Glide for a meal each day). Volunteers are needed each day for every shift to help on on the following: stocking their pantry's, preparing their meals, serving the meals,
and cleaning up the kitchen seating area.

None the less Glide is an amazing place that helps a lot of people.

We were only able to reserved 14 seats for the Lunch Shift from 11:30-2:00pm - Kindly be on time as we will not be the only group helping out.

We all may be assigned to different stations. In my experience at Glide, the 1.5 hours that I spent there went super quick. It may seemed we served over 400+ meals during a shift.

For the gals who want to catch up afterwards, we will head to nearby Hotel bar for some much needed catch up time.

*Dress comfortably and accordingly; it gets HOT in the kitchen area with the steam trays

*Street parking is difficult in the area. The parking lot across the street is $13 (flat rate)

*Our purse/bags will be placed in locked storage area but please try not to bring anything big.

Please make sure you are available & in town this day as we would appreciate 'no last minute cancellations' since we only have 14 seats!

    Ladies--Here is a note from Glide::::In a typical service shift, volunteers prepare trays and hand them to clients; those manning the floor collect trays, refill beverage pitchers, hand out condiments and wipe down tables. Most importantly, your group will serve as a friendly and warm presence for our clients. The work is simple, but the value is far greater!

    Glide is located at 330 Ellis at the corner of Ellis & Taylor. Directions to Glide can be found at http://www.glide.org/contactus#parking

    Glide is a short walk from the Powell St., Bay Area Rapid Transit station.

    There are also three parking lots that are easily accessible from Glide. There is parking at the Hilton parking lot on Ellis, APM parking lot which is parallel to the Hilton parking lot and Discount Parking located at Taylor and Eddy. Unfortunately, there is no parking available for Glide employees or volunteers on the premises.

    Please arrive no more than 10 minutes before the start of your volunteer service. When you arrive, sign in at the
