Meal Service Volunteer
The goal of the Meal Service Volunteer is to ensure that individuals who live in our residences have access to meals 3 times a day and can do so in a supportive environment. Serving food is the primary task. The Meal Service Volunteer is welcome to converse with the individuals living in our residences.
Primary duties include:
• Preparing food before mealtime.
• Serving food and drinks to individuals using our services.
• Wiping tables down after mealtime.
• Organizing food and program supplies.
• Cleaning dishes.
• Meeting individuals where they are at and providing them meaningful engagement.
We can provide a lot of flexibility for people who want to come in from a few times a week, to weekly, to monthly, to once or a twice a year. If you want to volunteer for a semester, a summer, or more long-term, we have options! We also have flexibility in schedule to work around a time that works for you.
Interested? We have a spot for you! You can apply at sghottawa.com/volunteer or email us at [email protected].
How will this opportunity benefit the volunteer?
The Meal Service Volunteer shift is a great place for volunteers to engage with the community directly, build relationships and learn about the community while working with a vulnerable population. The volunteer will be able to develop their skills working as part of a team and see the impact of their actions immediately.
Donating your time and talent connects you to amazing people in our community, creates new and long-lasting friendships, and contributes to the SGH vision of homes for all, community for all, hope for all.
How will the organization benefit?
SGH benefits from volunteers to help serve our meals, keep our programs safe and clean, and to share our special skills and interests with each other and those who are using our services.
