Quantity:  To get an exact count and any food allergies, please call the Program Lead, Iyona Smith at (925) 228-6920 the week before your scheduled day.

Purchasing Ingredients: Please purchase items to prepare the meal, beverages (only low-fat milk, water or 100% juice) and desserts. Volunteers are also encouraged to bring serving plates, cups, and napkins.

Suggested Meals: Casseroles, kid-friendly finger foods, mac & cheese, salads, mashed potatoes, roasts, chicken and other family friendly foods.

  • Food handling guidelines must be strictly enforced.
  • Wash hands before serving and preparation of food.
  • Use gloves when handling food.

Serving Dinner: Meals are served cafeteria style.

  • All hot meals remain behind the counter and are served by staff or volunteers.
  • All beverages and cold dishes are put on the tables in front of the counter so that clients can serve themselves.

Eating Dinner: Once all clients are served, volunteers may join the clients and dine with them.

Clean-Up: Please, clean-up after the meal is finished by cleaning any necessary dishes and disposing of trash. Store and label any left-over food which is used for lunch the following day.

Additional Items: The shelter relies on generous donations by the community to sustain the site. If you would like to donate any additional items, such as paper plates and cleaning supplies, please contact Iyona Smith at (925) 228-6920 for a list of current needs.
