This is a great opportunity for individuals or groups to serve healthy warm meals to those in need, and for junior high and high school students to earn service hours. Service hour groups of students will need to be accompanied by an adult. If you are interested in supporting this effort on Wednesday, April 6 please signup here. We need to provide One City Café with our list of volunteers by Monday, April 4. We will post additional sign up lists for subsequent dates.
