Frequently Asked Questions

How can I volunteer?

There are many ways people can assist:

  • cooking
  • raising money
  • food donations
  • or by becoming a volunteer and helping out in the shop.

On service nights we have multiple roles that need someone such as:

  • food service
  • table service
  • drinks service
  • dishes and clean up

There is no firm commitment. We ask when setting up the monthly roster who is available so it is up to the volunteer how much of a commitment they want to give.
