Opportunity Details

FOOD: Serve Lunch at Father Joe's

Help combat hunger among our homeless neighbors! Father Joe’s Villages staff and volunteers offer more than 1 million meals each year in their dining rooms and the Franklin Antonio Public Lunch Line. Come join Father Joe’s Villages kitchen crew as they help prepare and serve meals to our neighbors living on the streets of our community.

Volunteers will be in the kitchen preparing food, setting up the salad bar, serving food 'cafeteria style' and helping in the dining area. As a result, neighbors can focus less on hunger and more on building a brighter future.
