Be a Guest Chef at Ascencia

Every morning and evening, volunteers prepare and serve hot meals for homeless families and adults in Ascencia's Emergency Housing program. These “Guest Chefs” give their time and energy, generously donating food and a great deal of compassion with each plate. Volunteers in the Guest Chef Program commit to preparing meals for approximately 45 shelter residents on a daily basis. Volunteers typically create a Guest Chef team comprised of fellow members of a congregation, service organization, co-workers, family members, friends, etc. f you are interested in signing up, please be sure to review our safety protocols for on-site volunteering and visit our Sign Up Genius.

Make Lunches for Ascencia Clients

Ascencia's Volunteer from Home Program was created in response to COVID-19, as a way to keep their volunteers engaged and connected to Ascencia. One way is to make brown bag lunches for clients in the shelter and individuals on the streets. Their Outreach Team goes out every day and will take brown bag lunches to those in need. Lunches can include peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, fruit, chips, water, etc.
