Our congregation volunteers with the Children & Family Urban Movement (CFUM) to provide meals at the Trinity Las Americas Methodist Church twice a month (1st Wednesday and 4th Tuesday). Since the pandemic, we have continued to prepare the meals and deliver them to Trinity. Once delivered, the volunteers from CFUM set up tables outside and distribute the meals to the families.
We encourage you to help distribute the meals! Volunteers need to bring their own masks, but gloves will be provided when you arrive at 4:00pm and should plan on staying until 5:45pm (though you often are done before that). Tables are set up outside to provide as much safety as possible. Volunteers will place food containers and other food rescue items (bread, fruits & veg, etc.) in sacks and hand them to the families. While all the volunteers will have masks and gloves, be aware that not all the people we serve will have masks (it is encouraged they should wear masks). Volunteers will help spacing out lines of people to maintain 6 feet of social distancing.
Make sure to select the date(s) you'd like to volunteer.
Parking is on 8th or College and the distribution happens on the sidewalk in front of Trinity Church on 8th st. Look for Polly or David when you arrive and they can get you going.
