A Meal and More, Inc. has been serving people in need since 1979. With the help of a retired professional chef and many volunteers they serve, free of charge, hot, well-balanced, nutritious meals to as many as 100 or more guests every Wednesday and Sunday in a safe, inviting and clean environment. Guests include the homeless, disabled, unemployed, elderly, children and anyone needing a helping hand at this time in their lives. In addition to a hot meal the agency also offers clothing and personal care supplies. At Christmas, guests receive a gift bag with necessary items. They also offer guests moral support and encouragement in coping with their situations. In some cases, guests may be referred to other agencies for emergency shelter, public assistance or job opportunities, and given them a list of additional soup kitchens in the Rochester area.
To volunteer at A Meal and More email firstname.lastname@example.org with your volunteer preferences and availability. Generally, volunteers help to set tables, serve food, arrange desserts, and breads, and help with making salads. All volunteers must cover their hair in order to assist with these jobs, and wear closed-toed shoes and gloves to keep food satefy and kitchen safety protocol met. Note that a baseball hat with hair pulled back is fine to meet the covered hair requirement.
