Casserole Donation

Casserole donations are so important for our shelter guests. We serve three meals a day, 365 days per year in our homeless shelters.

  • For the men’s shelter, we require about 20 casseroles for one meal.
  • For the single women and families, we require about 15 casseroles to make a meal.
  • We request that the casseroles be delivered to us all together and FROZEN. There is more information in the Casserole Guide below.
  • It helps our kitchen staff immensely if all the casseroles are of the SAME recipe.
  • The document below provides an idea of how to organize a large casserole donation. It also provides helpful information for your casserole-making volunteers, including recipes that have been given the seal of approval by our Director of Food Service.

Bag Lunch Donation

Our bag lunch program is a necessity in our two Gateway Shelters and augments our daily menu. Bag lunches help us accommodate those guests who stay in our “Overflow” areas and/or guests who are unable to eat a meal on-site due to appointments and/or work commitments. We utilize approximately 100 bag lunches daily. If you can do 100 or more, great! If not, we are very grateful for whatever you can provide.
