6:00pm - 8:00pm Meal Volunteer....provides and serves a nutritious meal to our guests. Also provides the ingredients for a bagged "to go" breakfast. There is no cooking
allowed at the shelter, so meal must be brought already prepared. We can heat it up if necessary.

while the other provides supervision.
