What Meals are on the Signup?


You can sign-up to bring bagged lunches or pre-prepared dinner for the guests. The date you sign up for is the date you drop off/bring the meals off at the shelter location (either Augsburg or St. Timothy's)




Bagged Lunches Details


Volunteers will provide bagged lunches for guests & drop them off at the shelter locations. We need 20 bagged lunches total each day for each shelter site. Bagged Lunches can be bagged in galllon bags, brown paper bags, or plastic grocery bags. Our guests will have little access to other lunch options--so please pack hearty lunches. Below is a list of what needs to be included in the lunch bags--this is a minimum! - A sandwich or “heat & eat” food (think Spaghettios or Dinty Moore) - Something salty (chips and/or cheese/PB crackers) - Something sweet (little debbie snacks or sweet treats preferred) - Canned fruit (applesauce cups, fruit cups, jellos, puddings) - An "on-the-go" drink mix packet (like crystal light, etc) If you have sandwiches or anything that needs to be kept cool, please pack those separately so they can be refrigerated and added to the bags in the morning.




Do the Dinner Meals Need to be Boxed?


No! If it is more convenient to bring dinner preboxed, you are welcome to do so. However, we also invite you to serve and plate the meal to our guests.
