Village Lutheran Church coordinating, collecting and delivering meals for CSA
Our “Make A Meal For One Night” program is a great way for you and/or your friends or group help volunteer your time OFF SITE. Often times our 5pm dinner service is not compatible with many peoples busy schedules, so we offer this volunteer opportunity as a way to help on your own time while still being an enormous benefit to us and our guests! This program also helps to alleviate some of the high costs of food and enables us to spend that money on other operational costs.
Q. How do I sign up for me and/or my group to make a meal? A. Please visit our calendar page to view all available dates, then contact us with the date you want and we will mark it in the calendar. Q. How many people do I need to cook for? A. We are currently serving an average of 50-60 meals per night. Q. Do we do the cooking at your facility? A. NO. All cooking must be done in your own homes, and then delivered to us on your chosen date. Q. What time does food need to arrive on the chosen date? A. We prefer to have food come in hot and ready to package and serve at 5pm, so any hot food should be delivered between 4:30pm-4:45. Wes do have a small oven which we use to reheat food when necessary. If your food is cooked ahead of time and being refrigerated, then please have the food delivered no later than 3pm to give us time to reheat. Q. Do you require any vegetarian, or gluten free options? A. We do not have any requirements for vegetarian or gluten free, however we do try to stay away from serving dishes containing pork products. Q. Do we need to supply a beverage as well? A. You are welcome to supply a beverage, but it is not necessary. If you do supply the beverage, we ask that it does not contain caffeine. Q. Can I bring in other donations with the meal? A. Please call or email with any questions about extra donations. Q. Is there a limit to how many times me and/or my group can sign up to make a meal? A. NO. There are no limitations for frequency of meal donations. As long as the date is available on our calendar, then it is available for you to take. Q. Where do I deliver the food? A. All food deliveries must come to: 8 South Second Avenue Mt. Vernon, NY 10550 Call or email ahead of time with ETA and someone should be available to meet you outside and help bring in the food.
