Share Hot Meals provides daily, free meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) to the public, 365 days each year. And those who enjoy the meals are not limited to Outreach and shelter clients. They also include individuals and families who are working, but who are still not able to make enough money to make ends meet. Much of the food used in the program is donated by area grocery stores and is prepared each day by volunteers and staff.

Volunteering for Share Hot Meals: Preparation & Serving

Volunteers come from all over Clark County to assist in the kitchen. Much of the food used in the program is donated by area grocery stores and is prepared each day by volunteers and staff.

Time commitment is 2-4 hours; frequency is determined according to the volunteer schedule and varies according to meal and shelter location. Volunteers work alongside our staff and residents to help prepare and serve meals in our Hot Meal Program. Individuals as well as groups are welcome.

Through TEFAP, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) purchases a variety of nutritious, high-quality USDA Foods, and makes those foods available to State Distributing Agencies.
