SAVE Shelter Meal Donation Program
Submitted By Tina Fernandez
Are you passionate about cooking? Are you looking to help those in need or give back to your community? Then Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments (SAVE) has a volunteer opportunity that will give you the chance to not only show off your cooking skills but to also show our emergency shelter families that you care.
SAVEÕs Shelter Meal Donation Program is a wonderful way to nourish victims of domestic violence and their families, and show them that their journey to healing is a community concern. Previous meal donors have told us that providing a nutritious meal was a fun and rewarding experience, and our clients have shared how grateful they are for our communityÕs kindness and the chance to be treated to a prepared meal.
Past donors have included the Newark Rotary, Crossroads, InRoads, and Christ the King Church ministry groups, local Girl Scout Troops, The Sisters of the Holy Family, service groups such as FremontÕs Mukti for Social Development, Friends of SAVE, and the Fremont Elks, local restaurants such as The Nile Cafˇ, Niles Pie Company, Mizuumi Japanese Buffet, Super Suppers, and many other Bay Area individual donors.
SAVEÕs goal is to have at least one hot meal donated every week. If youÕre interested in participating, please contact Tina at (510) 574-2266 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For additional info, visit: http://save-dv.org/emergency-shelter-meal-preparation/. SAVE has a team of volunteer drivers who will pick up and deliver the meal from your location.
