We are grateful that you are considering being part of our ministry by participating in providing meals to the poor and vulnerable population. It can be a profound and rewarding experience for doing something so simple as offering a hot meal to a hungry person, but at the same time, it can mean the world to a person who hasn’t eaten nourishing food, for sometimes several days.
During the pandemic, we have converted to serving grab-and-go meals from our street-side entrance. Currently, volunteers are needed for meal assembly and serving monitors. Six meals are provided each week Monday through Thursday with four breakfasts (7:30 am) plus dinner on Monday and Tuesday (4:30 pm). Volunteers may choose one or more meal periods per week to participate.
Meals are prepared and served from the New Community church building 518 W 3rd Ave in downtown Spokane (on the corner of 3rd Ave and Howard St). Volunteers access the facility by ringing the intercom doorbell (left of the glass doors) to gain entry by a facility coordinator for assignment.
Volunteers are required to follow COVID-19 requirements including an assessment sign-in form, wash hands, and wear vinyl gloves. Face covering masks are required by all (inside or outside). Aprons and face masks are available.
To get started, please complete a Volunteer Application (download the Word doc or pdf application form below) or call us at (509) 455-9019 for a mail-out. Sorry, volunteers must be 18 years or above to participate.
My expectation is that you will enjoy this experience and, I would encourage your feedback at any time. Please send information to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
