Ray of Hope Inc.

   About the Position

Impact Statement
Group Meal Teams are extremely valuable partners with the Ray of Hope Community Center in our daily meal program where we provide hot, nutritious meals for our persons experiencing poverty, homelessness, addictions or mental health concerns.

You and your team of 8-12 people make a commitment to provide, prepare and serve a hot, nutritious meal on a specified date. Please note: all volunteers must be 18 years old or older to volunteer.

To find an available date for your group please review the "Meal Team Calendar" at our webpage

Some groups create their own meal plan, shop for their own ingredients, and bring it all with them when they arrive. Alternately, ROHCC can acquire all the supplies for you and have them ready when you arrive. In this case the organization can simply bring a cheque for $850.00 with them. Groups MUST communicate with Jaime Wright their preferred choice.

Group Meal Team volunteers will also help to support the physical health and safety of everyone at the Community Centre by helping to clean and sanitize at the end of each shift.
