One way to support HomePlate’s expansion to Beaverton is to volunteer to cook a dinner at their new location, Merlo Station High School. Preparing dinner is a great way for your church or group to immediately help youth in our community who are facing homelessness.
What does preparing dinner look like? Dinner groups usually consist of 2 to 8 volunteers who plan a meal, buy the ingredients, cook the meal at the on-site kitchen, and serve the meal to youth and volunteers. We ask groups to cook enough food for 30 to 45 people, as youth, volunteers, and staff all join in a shared meal during our drop-in dinner time from 6 to 8pm.
