Dorothy Day House Cooks
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 information about preparing and serving meals at the DDHH:
1.) St. Joseph's is scheduled to provide a meal throughout the year on the first Monday and on the third Wednesday of every month. Meals are served at 6:00 p.m for about fifteen guests and a few staff members. 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. Individuals may stop at the DDHH in the morning, get food 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).
2.)House staff welcome the group to eat with the guests; which truly is an enjoyable experience for all involved!
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.
