Volunteer opportunity description

We are seeking volunteer teams and individuals to prepare and serve a Thursday or Saturday Food for Friends hot meal. If you are looking for an opportunity for your business, or as an individual to volunteer or want to gather a group of friends, we have a place for you to cook and serve. Preparation begins at 9:00 am and we serve at noon. Join a community of folks who love to cook for, converse with, serve and be served by the community around them. We are located at 530 W Fullerton Parkway in the Lincoln Park neighborhood. (Just west of Clark).
This is an excellent opportunity for people to volunteer in a fun, safe, environment, either on a regular or periodic basis. We open our doors to anyone who is in need of a hot meal and are funded by donors and grants, with no Government assistance.
