Covenant House Georgia is more than a shelter. They provide more than a bed and a meal for youth experiencing homelessness and escaping trafficking; they show unconditional love and give comprehensive support so that their youth can and will realize their fullest potential.
Covenant House is in need of volunteers to prepare and share a meal every night of the week. This is a wonderful opportunity for families, corporate groups, church groups and individuals to impact the lives of homeless youth. Fifty-seven percent of homeless youth spend at least one day a month without food, so even a simple meal can begin the healing process for a young person.
How to Volunteer:
Volunteers must register directly with Covenant House by clicking here to select your date. The dates listed on our calendar may no longer be available, so select any other date that is convenient for you. When you register you are volunteering to provide the entire meal unless you team up with someone on your own.
Dinner is served from 6 pm-7 pm, every night of the week in the crisis shelter. Drop off should be prior to 5:30 pm. Lunch is served from 12 pm-1 pm, Saturday and Sunday in the crisis shelter. Food should be provided for 65 youth. As a part of the COVID- 19 Precautions, they ask that the meal is prepared at home or ordered from a restaurant. Volunteers are welcome to deliver the meal but will not be able to stay and serve. We ask that all volunteers be age 21 or older to deliver the meals.
We encourage healthy eating here at the shelter. We ask that you please bring a main entrée dish, along with a grain/starch option and one to two vegetable side options. Fruit is popular and dessert is optional. Keep it simple! For any entrées, we ask that you provide an alternative vegetarian entrée so that all of our youth can enjoy the meal. Please provide in containers that you will not need back.
NOTE: If you need to cancel, please provide as much lead time as possible. The youth are counting on you to provide a meal and they need ample time to provide an alternative option.
This opportunity has multiple shifts see schedule tab to sign up.
