The Emergency Residence Project (ERP) 225 S Kellogg Ave, Ames IA 50010 phone 515-232-8075
Individuals and small groups from St. Thomas provide meals for those currently staying at the Ames Shelter (ERP) on Friday evenings year round. Generally people who prepare the meal stay and eat with the residents around 5:30 pm. You can cook in their kitchen after 4 pm or cook at home and bring the meal with you. We are always looking for additional volunteers to cook - feel free to pass on the word.
When you sign up to cook for a particular Friday, you also need to phone the shelter the day beforehand to let them know you will be cooking and to ask how many people to cook for (515 232-8075). There are generally 8 to 12 people. They like to eat around 5:30ish. Suggestions for food are a main course and fresh fruit. They really appreciate a home cooked meal. Contacts for questions are Dan and Felicity Douglas 515-292-3566
