Description

Becoming a Meal Donor Volunteer is a simple way to make a significant impact in the lives of young people in your community while providing a transformative experience for volunteers and service groups.


Through our emergency shelters, Friends of Youth offers temporary living alternatives to young people who are dealing with a crisis or experiencing homelessness. We rely on our incredible volunteers to offer wholesome, pre-cooked meals for the youth we serve each day of the week.


Meal Donors are currently needed for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.


Meal Donor Responsibilities

  • After completing a volunteer application, sign up for open shifts on our meal donor calendar. We welcome one-time or recurring meal donors.
  • Prepare meals for 30-40 young adults to bring to the shelter site.
  • Make arrangements to deliver meals directly to our shelter during the following times:
  • Breakfast: 6 – 6:45 am
  • Lunch: 10 am – 2 pm
  • Dinner: 8 – 8:45 pm
  • Meal donors are encouraged to stay and serve their donated meal.


Who Can Become a Meal Donor

  • Due to the large quantity of food needed, this opportunity is best suited for small groups of 2-3 volunteers. If you have a larger group, we are happy to work with you to create a recurring schedule so everyone in your group has a chance to participate.
  • Individuals are welcome, so long as they are capable of preparing large quantities of food on their own and transport it to the site. Meals cannot be prepared on site.
  • Please note that volunteers must be at least 21 years of age, or accompanied by someone 21 years or older.
