Project Home Day Center
Thank you for your interest in serving a meal at the Project Home Day Center! Every Saturday and Sunday, teams of volunteers prepare and serve lunch and dinner for the families at the Project Home Day Center. Each team creates a menu, provides the food, prepares the meal, dines with the families, and cleans up afterwards. Meals are served buffet-style with team members joining families and staff at the tables after the families are served. A team’s time commitment is approximately two-three hours, which includes meal preparation in our licensed kitchen, dining with families, and cleanup. Teams are composed of about 4-8 adults; supervised older children are welcome. Lunch is served at noon, and dinner is served at 4:30pm. Come as early as you need to prepare.
At any given time, we have about 40 individuals, parents/grandparents with children, staying in our shelters. On the weekends, we allow weekend passes, so not all families stay at the day center during the weekend and they are able to connect with local friends and family. For weekend meals, we usually average around 10-12 people on Saturdays and 15-20 on Sundays. You are always welcome to call the day center's office at 651-225-9354 the morning of your shift to get an accurate head count.
