02 Nov Cook and Package Hot Meals for Homeless Young People
Join us in supporting young people in Seattle’s University District! Teen Feed works with the community to offer support to meet basic needs, build strong relationships, and ally with homeless youth as they meet their future off the streets. Teen Feed meets youth nightly with a hot, home-cooked, and nutritious dinner along with access to basic needs and caring adults. Street Outreach teams meet young people where they’re at, providing resources and access to youth-centered case management.
Since COVID, Teen Feed has transitioned to hot to-go meal service. Volunteers will help cook or package hot meals in our kitchen, which will be distributed to young people by trained staff. Dinner volunteer opportunities available in the University District from 6:30 – 8:30 pm.
**Some safety considerations: We are asking that at this time anyone who may fall into a high-risk category does not participate in person at dinner. Please reach out if you need further clarification on what “high risk” might look like. Additionally – we are working to limit our in-person teams to no more than 3 or 4 individuals at a time in order to comply with social distancing. Face masks required at all times, do *not* come in person if you are feeling unwell or have any symptoms of illness.
The minimum age is 15, must be accompanied by a parent or guardian until age 18.
Contact us over email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will provide a schedule of current opportunities to get in the kitchen with us!
