About this Meal Train Plus
Meal service program is our biggest growing volunteer program and also our biggest need. We have options for volunteers to serve breakfast, lunch or dinner and flexibility with the dates.
Please note that this opportunity is intended for groups of 3-5 volunteers, the cost associated with the activity varies from $100-$300 based on the type of meal, and the minimum age requirement is 21.
~ Breakfast: 2-3 volunteers, serving 50, approx. cost $100, arrival to YouthLink at 8:20am
~ Lunch: 3-5 volunteers, serving 80, approx. cost $250-$300, arrival to YouthLink at 10:30am
~ Dinner: 3-5 volunteers, serving 30, approx. cost $100, arrival to YouthLink at 3:00pm
~ For groups of more than 5 volunteers: please contact Jelena Song at firstname.lastname@example.org before signing up.
Having volunteers provide a meal is a wonderful opportunity for volunteers from our community to experience our drop-in center and interact with youth, and for youth it’s a great opportunity to eat creative meals and meet people with life journeys different from their own.
Please use the calendar if you would like to schedule a meal service for your group. You will receive more detailed information upon signing up.
If you are not able to attend, you could also order in food from a restaurant, or simply sponsor a meal and have us take care of ordering:
