About The Event
The Friendship Service Center (FSC) is a nonprofit organization that provides food for the hungry and shelter for the homeless. One of their services is the Community Kitchen, which provides free hot lunches 5 days a week to those in need and also provides 3 meals a day, seven days a week, to shelter residents and former residents.
St. James parish is committed to staffing the kitchen with 5 volunteers, from 9:30 AM to 1:30 PM on the 3rd Thursday of each month, and we would love to have you there!
The kitchen at Friendship Service Center has a professional staff headed by Chef Gerry Waldo. The staff plans the menu, provides recipes, ingredients and directions. Volunteers are asked to help prep the food, serve it to well over 100 people, and then clean up. There is a wide range of tasks, some of which don’t need a lot of “stand-up time.” Carpools from St. James will be set up if needed.
Sign-up sheets are posted in the parish hall. For more information, please contact Armen Slusarz at 860-916-7554 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
