Serving a Meal

Serving a meal at the St. Francis House is a great opportunity for families, youth groups, and businesses to volunteer. Due to limited space, the ideal number of volunteers to serve the evening meal is seven. The meal is served every evening at 6:30 pm and 7:00 pm. We offer a number of options for volunteering at the evening meal.

A group may:

1) Serve only
  • Arrive by 6:15 pm
  • Serve the meal and eat with our guests
  • Clean-up dinner
2) Full Meal
  • Arrive no later than 6 pm to set-up the meal
  • Serve the meal to our guests and eat with them
3) Prepare and serve the meal
  • You can shop in our pantry and freezer for items to use for the evening meal. You may either prepare the meal in our or your kitchen.
  • Arrive allowing yourself enough time to have the meal served at 6:30 and 7:00 pm
  • Serve the meal to our guests

If you are interested in serving an evening meal, please either email ( or call us at 605-679-7049.
