help deliver meals to families

We aim to ensure that families have their basic needs met while in shelter and providing three fresh and balanced meals per day is a crucial part of that.


People Serving People’s meal program is one of the largest operations in the whole shelter, both in the number of people it serves each day and in the number of people needed to keep it running smoothly. Help ensure meals get to families on time serving meals in our dining hall. All volunteers must be 18+ or 13+ with a chaperone.

We are seeking individual and groups who are willing to commit to a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly shift for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Shifts have space for 4-6 people depending on the meal. Shift availability may vary due to preexisting volunteer schedules. Shifts are available at the following times daily:

  • Breakfast: 7:30am – 9:30am
  • Lunch: 11:30am – 1:30pm
  • Dinner: 4:15pm – 6:30pm

If you are interested in committing to a regular schedule, please contact us at, or by phone at 612-277-0246 or check out our volunteer page at Meal Service at People Serving People.
