Prepare & Serve Dinner—Solutions for Change (Filled)

Part of

Hope for San Diego volunteer teams to have the opportunity to serve together on the 2nd Sunday of every month from 5-6pm (as well as some additional Sundays).  Gather your family, friends, church community, or small group to prepare and serve dinner for the new Overcomers families starting at Solutions for Change in Vista. You will not only be providing essential food for these previously homeless families, but also become a part of the supportive community that they experience at Solutions for Change. Volunteers of all ages are welcome—this is a fantastic opportunity for families. Dinner will be served in an outdoor area. Sign up for a “dinner date” for you or a group.  (Scroll down for more fun details below by the map/address).

About the Event

Dinner Date Details:   Plan for enough cooked/prepared food & drink for 20 people, half of whom are children. A more accurate number will be sent out the week before your serve date. Good nutrition is encouraged, so please bring vegetables and protein. Drinks can include water, juice boxes or milk. Volunteers are responsible for bringing paper plates, napkins, cups, forks, knives, spoons and serving utensils. Dessert is optional.
Volunteers should arrive at 5pm and be prepared to serve dinner by 5:15pm.  Feel free to pray before dinner!  The outdoor dinner lasts 30-45 minutes.  We encourage you to eat with the SFC residents and make connections!  It’s a joy to see children as young as five dishing out food.  Younger children are welcome to play with the younger residents, too.
More about Solutions For Change:  Come see the Solutions Academy & meet the hard-working residents who may have struggled with addiction, effects of trauma or abuse, generational poverty, incarceration, lack of education or work history, loss of family, friends, children, or housing.
Now, at Solutions Academy these Overcomers are part of a comprehensive 700-day vocational program that prepares families for lifelong success through career pathways, work experience, leadership training, family management skills, teamwork, financial literacy, personal development, accountability, and connection.
