Are you searching for a way to get your family and young children involved in caring for others?  Homeless Solutions provides a hands on opportunity to help feed adults, children and families.  Four times a year, faithful members of our congregation volunteer their time to shop and cook dinner for the Homeless Solutions Shelter in Morris Plains.  Once again,  we are in need of volunteers to (1) Grocery shop and (2)Cook and serve the meals.

For grocery shopping, the list is provided and you are reimbursed for the purchases. Shopping is done Saturday morning and delivered to the shelter.  For cooking, you arrive at 3:30pm to begin cooking, and the recipes are provided.  Dinner is served at 6pm and  clean up is done by shelter residents.  We will walk you through every step with detailed shopping lists and cooking instructions.

Our remaining 2019 dates are:

  • Saturday June 29:  Cooking Only (cold foods so a bit easier)
  • Saturday September 7:  Cooking Only (cold foods so a bit easier)
  • Saturday November 30:  Shopping and/or Cooking
