Donate Lunch To Our Shelter : RENEWAL HOUSE

Would you, your family or social group like to support homeless women and children by providing a meal at our newest shelter, RENEWAL HOUSE in Libertyville? Volunteer and sign up to donate lunch to our shelter residents on an available (unclaimed) date listed below*. We ask that lunch meals be dropped off between 12 PM and 12:30 PM on the date you select.

Meal Options

Option 1: Homemade Meals
Attention home chefs and those who would like to share a favorite family recipe with our shelter residents: HOMEMADE MEALS ARE BACK!  Sandwiches, wraps, soups, chili, salads, etc.--you are only limited by your imagination! Our residents are so grateful and touched, knowing that members of their local community care enough to make a meal in their own kitchen to be shared around the Renewal House dining table.

Option 2: Restaurant Meals
Meals may be purchased from local restaurants. This is also a great way to support local establishments. Pizza, tacos, chicken, burgers, hot dogs and more, make for popular and easy restaurant meal choices. There are so many delicious American, Italian, Mexican, Greek, Chinese, Thai & Indian foods to select from a wide variety of amazing area restaurants. Our residents are not picky and will be so grateful for whatever you choose. You can either pick up the lunches and deliver them yourself or ask the restaurant if they provide their own in-house delivery or use a third-party meal delivery service. 

Option 3: Supermarkets
Purchase prepackaged, fresh foods like salad kits, ready-to-eat sandwiches (or separate sandwich fixings of cold cuts, cheese, rolls and condiments), individual meal entrees, cans/containers of soup, along with bags of chips and cans of soda or ice tea. Frozen entrees are also convenient alternatives.  Any food that can be cooked or heated in an oven or microwave is welcome. 

The variety of food, the selection of homemade meals or purchased meals from a restaurant or supermarket, and the decision of individual meals or family-style are entirely the choice of our wonderful meal donors. A range and microwave oven are available in our shelter kitchen, if any meals require heating.

Number of Meals Requested
We are currently asking that meal donors provide lunch for 10 (ten) adult women.

Shelter Address and Email Notifications
Once you have completed the few simple steps of signing up to donate a meal, you will receive an automated confirmation email within minutes of submitting your sign-up.  Please check your email inbox right away for this confirmation. Two days in advance of your scheduled meal, you will receive an automated email reminder which will include our confidential shelter address. Please be sure you have provided an accurate email address when you sign up and make sure our email notifications will not be routed to spam and junk mail folders.

*Two or more available (unclaimed) meal slots/dates can be selected and submitted simultaneously. Please note that current unclaimed meal slots/dates showing as 'locked' can most likely be unlocked by contacting the Volunteer Coordinator right up to the same day of a scheduled meal.

If you have any questions, please contact our Volunteer / Resource Coordinator at 847-680-1870 or [email protected]
