Diakonos Dash Volunteers
Working with friends from other churches, we deliver meals to residents of apartment buildings that specialize in housing friends transitioning out of homelessness. We currently have two apartment buildings on our list and will be expanding as our capacity grows. We gather at Greater Gethsemane Missionary Baptist Church (902 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr St) by 5:20 to organize meals and then leave for deliveries at 6:20. We are usually finished by 7:45. If you would like to volunteer with us, you can click the button below to sign up.
A meal preparation volunteer is responsible for making the main dish that can be easily divided into 40 (one building) or 70 (two buildings) portions for residents. A side dish, beverage, or snacks are optional or we will provide those in another way. Food should be delivered to Greater Gethsemane Missionary Baptist church at 5:20 or other pickup arrangements can be made.
Delivery volunteers will work in teams of 2-3. All volunteers are required to wear masks and food service gloves (provided).
