HWB volunteers are providing our partners at the Interfaith Works Shelter System in Olympia Washington a home cooked dinner most Saturday evenings, and 2 brown bag lunches per week - one on Saturday and one on Sunday. We also provide a brown bag "lunch" Friday evenings for the downtown Street Outreach at the shelter.
We prepare these meals at the Olympia Fig (1713 State Ave NE, Olympia), and usually need 3-4 volunteers on Saturday (the really busy day) and 2 on Sunday.

The approximate time commitments for the shifts
are as follows:
2:00 - 4:00 - Friday (Street Outreach Meal Prep)
10:30 - 12:30 - Saturday (meal preparation for Lunch and Dinner)
16:30 - 17:40 - Saturday (meal finishing and meal delivery to the shelter if doing dinner)
10:30-12:40 - Sunday (lunch preparation and delivery to the shelter and return of the dinner pans and crockpot to the Olympia Fig).
We also benefit from regular donations of supplies we use for our lunches and dinners!
