MEAL TEAM VOLUNTEERS

Keep our neighbors warm and fed

We are thankful to provide breakfast and dinner for our guests through the generous donation of our volunteers and member churches. Our ministry thrives because it belongs to our member churches and organizations. We encourage any group to participate, especially those in Southeast Baltimore County. Bring a study group, office team, class, youth team, ministry leaders, or rotate families to serve and get to know our guests. To get involved with serving a meal, sign up below.

START YOUR OWN MEAL TEAM

  1. Choose a contact person / group leader. Communication is always easier with one person should there be any changes in schedule, inclement weather, etc. That person is responsible for confirming your church's arrival at all of your designated mealtimes.
  2. Submit a meals signup form here or contact us at meals@churchesforsoh.org (or call 443-764-4249). Please sign up before October 5 with dates or a day of the week where your group can serve. Some serve weekly, others bi-weekly, others monthly. Mealtimes are available every night starting at 6:00pm, November 4 - April 15. If you have not signed up before October 5, please note that dates are always changing. We will do our best to provide you with available nights to serve, but cannot guarantee your requested mealtimes will be open.
  3. Wait to receive our welcome packet and for the meals calendar to be posted. Your dates may conflict with others, so it is possible we will ask to adjust some mealtimes.
  4. Review our recipe book and servers' guide on what to prepare throughout the shelter season.


DONATE FOOD FOR MEALS

While serving dinner is a major part of providing for our guests, we still need items for breakfast and occasional lunches during freezing conditions. If you or your organization have food of any kind you wish to donate, please contact us to find out if there is a need at that time. To arrange food donation, please contact director@churchesforsoh.org or call 443-764-4249. Food donation examples include:
