Volunteer with Eden Housing


For Groups: Groups can sign up for this ongoing opportunity to cater and serve a meal at one of our affordable housing sites.  Build community by serving and sharing warm, nutritious family-style meals and spending time with residents. Volunteer groups commit to a minimum of 4 meals at the same property and must purchase all supplies needed. 



Volunteer group will plan a meal menu in consideration of total number of residents participating and their dietary restrictions. Shop for ingredients and cook meal. Deliver meal and all needed plates and utensils to site. Set the tables, serve food, sit and talk with residents and share the meal.  Clean and clear community space on site, pack up all items brought.

Skills needed:

Some kitchen and serving experience preferred. Must have excellent interpersonal skills and a positive personality and demeanor. Able to approach and welcome all types of people.


Volunteer groups will have the opportunity to work closely together to problem solve, execute a fun event, spend time with new people, and help provide a healthy meal to low-income seniors or families. 

Time commitment:

Volunteer group must commit to cooking and hosting a meal on site either one evening a quarter for one year, or once a month for four months.
