Serving Homeless Youth in Beaverton

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.

HomePlate is new to the Beaverton area and we are reaching out to restaurants, businesses, churches, and other organizations to partner with us in order to better serve the needs of the growing number of youth who are experiencing homelessness.
