Best Practices for Volunteers

Please tie back shoulder-length hair or longer, refrain from open-toed shoes, sleeveless shirts and shorts. If you're feeling sick, please stay home and let us know! In accordance with Health Department rules, there can be no eating or drinking behind the food service line.

We are located at 501 W. Archer St, right next to the Day Center for the Homeless. Enter through the back of the building through glass door. Press the black door bell and you will be let in.  Aprons and gloves are provided.
