CHPC (College Hill Presbyterian Church)
CHPC's meals are shown in the sign-up sheet below. We have the first Thursday and third Monday of each month. There are two slots per day: one for the main course (eg, meat + carb) and one for the vegetable + dessert. A reminder will be sent to you 3 days before if you leave your email.
Any questions, feel free to contact me at 908-319-1205 or [email protected]
1) Choose what day works best for you and complete the sign-up sheet below. In the comment section, you can add your phone number since this is the only information that is visible besides your name to others when you are done. I also will make sure that the signup board in the church hallway and this webpage are aligned, so you can signup either place.
2) About a week before, coordinate with the other person who is providing food on the day that you volunteered.
3) Call SafeHarbor in advance to know how much food to prepare. The house manager is Casey at 610-258-5540 x206, and she is in the office Mon-Fri 9-3 (call on Wednesday for the Thursday meal; call on Friday for the Monday meal). Typically there are 30-35 people to feed.
4) Food is only prepared at home. It is helpful to place it into easy-to-heat foil pans with a label of its contents.
5) Drop off food at Safe Harbor between 5:30-5:45pm. There will be someone waiting by a table that blocks the driveway and takes directions on how to heat/serve the food (you do not have to serve the food). The address for Safe Harbor is 536 Bushkill Dr, Easton, PA 18042. The people at Safe Harbor eat at 6pm.
6) That's it, you're done and thanks!
POST COVID (aka, "normal") procedures:
4) Food can be prepared at home or on site. Safe Harbor has a large gas range, utensils and pans that are well suited to cooking for large groups. You can also bring your own dishes as someone at Safe Harbor will wash them after the meal is served. The address for Safe Harbor is 536 Bushkill Dr, Easton, PA 18042.
5) Food is served at 6pm sharp by you and the other volunteer. The food is served on the provided cafeteria trays. Desserts are often self serve, as many Safe Harbor resisidents don't like too much sweets.
6) Feel free to eat your dinner with the residents. They appreciate it and they make good conversation. While you are eating in the main hall, someone cleans up the kitchen and your dishes.
7) Pick up your washed dishes and say goodbye to the appreciative faces.
