The 5000 Club needs additional cooks to lead the preparation of our Tuesday night dinners. We have recipes, training, procurement help, a wonderful kitchen, and a loyal group of kitchen helpers. The work any one week involves picking a menu, listing quantities of food for our procurement workers to order, leading the volunteer kitchen help on Tuesday afternoon (starting around 3 pm in preparation for a meal to be served at 5:30 pm). The rewards of providing even one meal to our appreciative neighbors are immeasurable! Contact Michael Bootes if you have questions or to tell him you are ready to join our volunteers!
The 5000 Club
Our 5000 Club food ministry began in the spring of 2006 as an effort to provide the hospitality of a weekly evening meal to those who in live in our neighborhood, including those without a home to call their own. The program quickly grew to where we are serving close to 200 meals a week, thanks to a strong corp of volunteers. They range from members of our cathedral and other area churches to individuals who simply want to help. Join the effort. Volunteers are always needed, particularly cooks.
In light of COVID-19, we have shifted away from our sit down meal, and are offering brown bag meals instead. This allows us to thoughtfully observe physical distancing and proper guidelines to keep our community of neighbors and volunteers safe and healthy.
