Thank you for considering a donation of food for our shelter! Due to COVID, we are not able to allow individuals who are not trained volunteers to serve meals at the shelter right now. If you are interested in becoming a trained volunteer, you can find the link at www.fortitudecommunityoutreach.org.
All food for the evening meal must be delivered to the shelter site between 6:15-6:30pm. Hot food must be delivered hot and cold food delivered cold. Please bring in a container you can leave with us OR that you take back with you, we are not able to get containers back to you. CROCK POT LINERS make it very easy for us to transfer from your crock pot to ours! If what you signed up for says "see recipe", please find the recipes attached below.
All breakfast food must be delivered to the site during the date and time frame on the sign up. The only exception to this is if you are volunteering for the morning shift and wish to bring the food with you that morning. Please follow any preparation instructions carefully.
If you sign up, you will receive an email reminder, but PLEASE do not forget! It is a hardship to scramble to find food when a meal doesn't arrive.
IF YOU SUSPECT YOU HAVE OR HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO COVID, please delete yourself from the sign up ASAP so others can sign up. It is helpful also to let Dawn know at 815-546-3271. Thank you!
As always, THANK YOU for helping meet this very critical need among our homeless population!
