Friday Feast Volunteer at ROOTS Young Adult Shelter


Friday Feast is an all-ages meal program serving hot dinner to approximately 100-150 people every Friday at the ROOTS shelter location. Volunteers help with meal preparation between 1-5pm, serve dinner from 5:30-7pm, and clean up until 8pm. Volunteers under 18 may participate with adult supervision. Unlike other individual volunteer opportunities, Friday Feast volunteers are not required to attend orientation, make a 6-month commitment or fill out a volunteer application. If you would like to volunteer with Friday Feast simply show up on any Friday between 12pm and 8pm. If you are interested in bringing a group of volunteers please call us and we will work with you to schedule that.

When: Fridays; flexible hours between 12pm-8pm

ROOTS is a young adult shelter that is almost exclusively volunteer run, serving 18-25 year olds. We are open 365 days a year, with up to 45 guests per night. Volunteers are needed to help with preparing and serving dinner, handing out supplies, and most importantly, building meaningful relationships with the folks who stay here. This is a great chance to make a visible impact in the lives of the people we serve, and be part of a wonderful volunteer community.
