Churches and local organizations:

Volunteers in the community:

Every week, a church group or other organization provides the meal.


Here are a few important details to remember if you are preparing food:


Prepare a nutritious well-balanced meal
for around 120 people.

 (check in with the assigned supervisor of your night
the week before for a more accurate number)


More Than a Meal provides the following

at the Stone Center:

Plastic gloves for serving & food preparation

Garbage bags

Take out containers

The sponsoring group is asked to provide any additional items they may need to make their meal a success. (e.g. table decorations for 10 or 12 long tables)

We also love for others to come

and serve at the meal.


Other ways to be involved on Tuesday nights include:


Greeting our guests and fellow volunteers at
the welcome table.

Visiting with our guests.

Tutoring or reading to the children who attend.

Helping distribute toiletries to guests.

Playing and supervising children at the meal and
on the playground.

Creating crafts with children.

Providing programs or talks to the guests.

Assisting the host group serve the meal, as needed.

Helping in the kitchen.

And more!!

There is a place for every helping heart at More Than a Meal!!

Volunteers need to be at the Stone Center at 4:00 p.m. to begin setup and the meal starts at 5:00 p.m.

Volunteers stay until 6:30 to make sure the Stone Center is clean and restored to its orderly condition. Please recycle..

We have been so blessed by the support of our community that we have to kindly ask that you contact us in advance to volunteer for a meal. We have a small space and would love to have everyone help, just not on the same night! There are plenty of ways to help and we appreciate all the support.


If you have any other questions about volunteering, please send us an email to
