Outreach Mission opportunities
Two great opportunities for people who like to cook! The Belfast Soup Kitchen needs cooks for Mondays and Wednesdays. Although the prospect of preparing food for 50 people may seem overwhelming even to experienced cooks, there are lots of people to help and the kitchen manager will guide you through the process. If you can’t make it once a week, if there are enough volunteers we could develop a team approach. Call Laura Richards, the Soup Kitchen manager, at 338-4845, to volunteer or let Mary Rackmales, 338-4518, know if you’d like to be part of a team. The Game Loft serves school-age youth over 12 and is open from 2 until 6 PM Monday – Thursday, and until 8:30 PM on Friday. The Game Loft’s mission is to provide Positive Youth Development through games. On Friday evenings about 6 PM dinner is to 20-30 participants. Usually the meal consists of a hot dish (chili, spaghetti, a casserole) and a salad or dessert, prepared at home and delivered to the Game Loft. Donna Loomans, 505-5587, is the coordinator of meal prep. Please call her if you can volunteer once a month or once a quarter or once in awhile. She will be happy to work you in and give you any guidelines.
