Dorothy Day House Cooks

Cooking Family Style at the FM Dorothy Day House of Hospitality!

Dear Meal Volunteer,

Sitting down at a table in our home, talking about our day, and enjoying the company of another family member means more to us than a bite to eat, as sharing this time with family also nourishes our hearts and our souls. This kind of nourishment is also important to guests staying at the Dorothy Day House of Hospitality (DDHH). These dinner interactions during a family style meal can help guests with developing trust and rapport.

Here's some great information to know about preparing and serving meals at the DDHH: 

1.) A hot meal is served at 6:00 p.m. each day of the week; families, churches, school groups, or other volunteers bring the meal. St. Joseph's Church has been preparing meals for the DDHH for many years. Meal preparations can be an issue with people getting done with work at 5:00 p.m. with dinner served at 6:00 p.m. Groups often stop at the DDHH in the morning, get things started in a crock pot and come back later to finish. The DDHH have also had volunteers come on the weekend to prepare for a weekday meal they signed up to serve. House staff can be creative and accommodating with the above situation as meals cannot be prepared off-site and brought in (state law requirement). St. Joseph's is scheduled to provide a meal throughout the year on the 1st Monday and on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.

2.) Plan to cook for 15 people plus your group. House staff welcome the group to eat with the guests; which truly is an enjoyable experience for all involved! We are asked not to have groups larger than 4-5 people. The Dorothy Day House of Hospitality has limited space and too many extra people may overwhelm guests.

3.) Pots/pans, utensils, beverages, and condiments at the House are available for you to use for meal preparations and serving. 

4.) Clean-up is taken care of by the DDHH guests.

5.) Questions? Contact Deacon Paul or Shawn Erickson at 218.236.5066.
