Prepare a Dinner

Shelter dinners are a hands-on experience. Every group who has come has asked to come back. It is both humbling and eye opening. When providing shelter dinners we do ask groups to provide all of the food and paper products needed for your particular dinner. We ask that the food be pre-made and brought to the shelter ready to serve. We have two populations you can choose from; men (approx. 300 men) and Midvale Center families (approximately 200 individuals). We ask groups to arrive at shelter at 6pm to set up and ready to serve by 6:30pm.  The Health Department is highly recommending that ALL food be prepared in a non-residential kitchen. For more detailed guidelines on preparing meals for our families and individuals please see the Health Department’s Food Safety Guide.
