What you need to know:

(APPLICABLE TO: KITCHEN, MEAL PREP):

CLEANLINESS IS PARAMOUNT

We are determined to provide a sanitary experience for all volunteers in order to ensure that we preserve our food safety standards. This means that we are relying on you to help us uphold that standard.

(APPLICABLE TO: ALL OUTREACHES)

WE VALUE YOUR TIME

It is one of our primary goals to optimize your time here. Though we are preparing thoroughly to avoid this, if there is ever a point at which you feel underutilized, please inform your leader and we will ensure that your time is not wasted.

BE ON TIME TO THE BRIEFING

The briefing will be 10 minutes after the outreach breakout (ET for breakout: 11:00am). Please do not be late as that will impede the

BE FLEXIBLE

There are many different tasks for this outreach and you may be asked to do different things at different times. Our request is that you will be flexible to the needs as they appear and know that our leaders are doing all they can to keep the program running smoothly and efficiently.

BE AWARE

No matter what your tasks on your team are, please know that you are a part of a much greater effort. We are one body, and you play a role today in reaching a life in need, please do not take that lightly.

WE DO NOT COMPROMISE ON SAFETY

If there is ever a point that you observe a situation that puts an individual in any danger, notify one of our leaders immediately.

DRESS FOR THE OCCASION

Please dress in comfortable clothes that do not limit your mobility and, if you are on a Meal Prep or Kitchen team, that is appropriate for working in food preparation (no hats that will fall off, loose jewelry, etc)

PACK LIGHTLY - THERE’S NO COAT CHECK!

Please pack lightly for this conference. If you need to bring snacks, extra layers, etc., we recommend bringing a comfortable backpack instead of a purse or handbag.

IF NOT ALREADY, OUR HOPE IS THAT YOU MAKE THIS A LIFESTYLE

We hope that you experience a true measure of joy in serving and we encourage you to let it go beyond the Conference. We’d love to have you come by regularly if you live in the area and if not, to take your lessons from this experience and change the community around you.
