Volunteers always needed
Our church prepares and serves lunch at the Preble Street Soup Kitchen in Portland whenever there is a fifth Saturday in a month. We are always looking for volunteers.
Our first workers arrive at 10 a.m. to prepare the meal, usually making an American Chop Suey of hamburger, sauce, vegetables and pasta. Volunteers are needed for both chopping and cooking. If you are interested, please see Steve Hill.
Most other volunteers arrive between 11-11:30 a.m., helping to cut bread, set up desserts and put together salads. Serving of the meal begins at noon.
If you cannot actually serve at the Soup Kitchen, we also need volunteers to contribute brownies for dessert. If you can provide brownies, please leave them in our church kitchen the day before we serve at the Soup Kitchen, marked “For Soup Kitchen.”
If you would like to donate money toward the purchase of food for the meal, please see Steve Hill or Jim Tammaro.
The meal ends at 1 p.m., but we always need volunteers to help clean up the kitchen and dining area for at least another half hour.
Please consider joining us for this important mission that serves 125-150 for its Saturday noon meals.
