Volunteer At Your Local Homeless Shelter
7 Days A Week
Cooking and/or serving meals at HomewardBound is one of the most vital jobs our volunteers do for us. This is also one of the most rewarding volunteer opportunities! Every month we have dates available that we must fill. Things to keep in mind as a Meal Volunteer:
- You and your group will be cooking and serving Breakfast/Dinner.
- We can supply food or ingredients for your meals, but it depends if we have it in stock, otherwise, you are responsible to provide your own ingredients.
- We recommend stopping by a day or two before your meal to see what we have before you shop for your meal.
- In the winter months, we serve upwards of 150 meals per night and in the summer 100 meals per night.
We understand it may be intimidating to cook for up to 150 people. Now with a $25 sponsorship fee, our Culinary Training Program will do all the cooking of the meal and you and your group can come in and serve dinner to our residents. The sponsorship fee helps offset the cost of the meal.
If you would like more details on cooking dinner or Sponsoring dinner at the shelter please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Jesse at 970-256-9424 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Cook and Serve a Meal
HomewardBound is the local homeless shelter here in Grand Junction. In the winter months, we serve upwards of 160 meals per night and 100 in the summer months. Here are a few helpful things to know when thinking about cooking and serving at HomewardBound. Groups should be no larger than 8 people. We are very limited on space, so any more than 8 it becomes too crowded. If you have a larger group, think about splitting them into 2 dates or having half cook and half serve!
