Tree of Life Community Kitchen
Thank you for reviewing our current volunteer opportunities. We greatly appreciate your willingness to serve during this time. Our purpose is very simple:
‘To reach out to the poor and needy in our community with the love of Jesus Christ.’
The Tree of Life Community Kitchen provides a free meal to our neighbors on a weekly basis. In the current health crisis, feeding those in need is as important as ever but we also want to make sure we are protecting the health of our volunteers and those we are serving. Therefore, Tree of Life is now offering FREE TO-GO MEALS available curbside at the Tree of Life Center in Purcellville, Thursday evenings from 5:30-6:30pm, in place of our regular community dinner event.
We invite you and your group to consider providing "to go" meals to help feed the community. At this time, we are expecting to serve approximately 60 meals each week. We are therefore asking each host group to provide 30 meals. This number varies at times and if needs change, you will be contacted at least a week prior to your sign up date to let you know the current number of meals needed. The meals will need to be prepared in advance and packaged in to go containers prior to being dropped off at the TOL center at 5:15. Tree of Life will provide to go containers for your group and you will be contacted a week prior to your sign up date to coordinate getting the containers to you. Alternatively, some groups have opted to purchase meals from local restaurants and deliver those to Tree of Life to be handed out – this is a great way to feed those in need and support local businesses.
Keeping safety for our partners and our volunteers a priority, we are asking to limit the number of volunteers handing out the meals. If your host group has anyone who would like to volunteer, please limit to 2-3 volunteers. If serving in person is beyond your comfort level, Tree of Life will provide the needed volunteers. Please simply drop your meal off at the center by 5:15 on Thursday. Those who stay to hand out food will be done by 6:30 at the latest.
The Tree of Life center is located at 210 N 21st St. Unit D. in Purcellville. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact at 540-441-7920 and [email protected]
