GBPC will host our very special guests from our community for the CAST shelter. These wonderful people have been blessed by the City of Chesapeake in a local motel for the remainder of the year. GBPC has offered to provide evening meals for the first two weeks of each month of September, October and November.
We will need volunteers to assist during the week to prepare, pack and deliver these meals.
You can volunteer in the following capacities:
Volunteers may contact Ivory Morris to coordinate pickup time. Trays of food, gloves and all packaging materials will be provided. Volunteers can package at the church outside under the overhang or they may bring food and materials to their location to divide, distribute and package up to 50 meals. One or two volunteers will deliver to our guests at the hotel.
CAST MEAL ALTERNATIVE PLANS
1 Anyone can take any day except for the mercy chef, vegan meal, and Saturdays. All other days are open. They can make whatever they would like, or they can follow the menu: it is up to whomever takes the day. Ivory put this in an order so they wouldn’t have spaghetti type sauce back to back or beef, chicken, turkey back to back.
2 If volunteers wish to purchase and make a meal on their own and not follow the suggested menu, please notify Ivory so she does not pre-purchase extra food. They can also donate money or ingredients towards any day if they would like to participate without being present. Again, please let Ivory know at least 3 days in advance so we are not duplicating meals.
3 If groups are providing waters or snacks, please let Ivory know in advance because she shops early. In advance would be by Wednesday of this week for next week and Wednesday of next week for the following week. A week in advance would be preferable.
We welcome financial contributions to offset the cost of food and packaging. Donations can be made to GBPC – memo CAST 2020 meals.
