Serve Dinner at the Sanctuary Shelter - 5 Volunteers

ECS-SF

Episcopal Community Services of San Francisco's Sanctuary Shelter provides safe, 24-hour access to shelter for unhoused adults in San Francisco. The shelter is home to 205 homeless adults every night. Residents receive two meals daily. They can also access case management and mental health services through ECS’s San Francisco Shelter Treatment Access and Resources Team. Tasks The food is prepared by staff cooks but we will help serve the meal. The dinner shift is from 6 - 8 pm beginning with a short orientation and continues with plating food and clean-up. There’s lots of room for interaction and connection with shelter residents as they receive their dinner meal. Some of the older clients and those with disabilities need extra assistance from volunteers to bring their meal directly to their table. You may want to have a light snack beforehand. After the event we will head out and get some food and drinks of our own. We will surely be hungry by then! Safety It is extremely important to maintain a high standard of cleanliness when we handle the food. All volunteers must be 15 years or older. If you are between the ages 15 and 17, then you must have adult supervision.

Dress appropriately in close-toed shoes, shirts with sleeves (no tank tops), pants that cover the full leg, and that you don’t mind getting dirty.

Suit up! Take an apron, hairnet, and gloves.

Wash your hands with soap and warm water and replace your gloves every time you use the restroom, shake someone’s hand, eat lunch, or switch from food preparation to cleaning.

If you are sick or not feeling well, STAY HOME!

    Hi,
    I'm new to this, what time should I plan to get there?
    Before 6 or 6?

      Great question. So, we start serving the meal at 6:30, but we do need to help prep. If you can get there right at 6, that's perfect! Actually, 10-15 mins before 6 works well,too. When you get to the venue, just go through parking lot gates towards the back of the building, there will be a garden to left, go through that entry and you will arrive at the back of the kitchen. I'll be there just before 6.

    Hey group! I am really excited to be working with you tonight, we always have fun at the event. I do ask that you double-check your schedule and availability, because we do have one on the wait list - just want to make sure every one gets the opportunity to volunteer. If you have any questions feel free to ask! Mahalo, Makua
