Similar to PADS we need both cooks and shoppers and volunteers to serve the meal. There is a sign-up book listing both food and volunteer needs in the church narthex.
Cooks prepare the requested menu items or purchase fresh fruit, other un-cooked foods and beverages. Each box on the sign-up page indicates a specified number of servings; sign up for what you are comfortable donating.
Hosting our guests and serving supper requires a dozen volunteers each month. They set up the dining room and serving line; warm entrée, vegetables and side dishes if necessary; serve the supper; distribute water, fruit, energy bars and other items offered to guests as the leave; bus table; wash dishes; and clean up at the end of the night. These volunteers work 2½ – 3 hours. Unlike PADS, no training is required. Summer Suppers is an ideal opportunity for families to work together. Teens and tweens, working with a parent, are welcome to volunteer.
