Ready to serve?

 

Meal prep and services is a great place to start. Read below to find out how to help and what to expect. 

Meal prep & services options

our food

You and your group help prepare and serve our food (required for first-time groups)

Your food

You and your group provide the food.  You are welcome to cook your food at our facility. Any food served at the Mission must be prepared in a VA Health Department inspected kitchen.  Please coordinate with us on this one so we can work out the details.

*We always ask you and your group to arrive in time to help setup for the meal and to stay for clean-up afterwards. This is a huge help to our kitchen staff whose days are quite long!
