Help Feed the Homeless this Summer

Here at Carpenter’s Place, we serve breakfast and lunch to our homeless guests Monday through Friday. We are looking for volunteers to help us fill our open meal slots for the summer months of July and August. For breakfast we serve between 40-60 guests, and for lunch we serve around 60 guests. Meal services are at 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., respectively.

Below are the open dates, as well as some of our guests favorite foods. We welcome your help.

What are some of the most popular meals?

For breakfast, our guests enjoy things like fresh fruit, cereal, and breakfast sandwiches. For lunch, popular items include pizza, pasta, fried chicken, fresh fruit, green salad, potato salad, and hot dogs.

To be in compliance with the Winnebago County Health Department Guidelines, we can only accept food as follows:

  • Prepared in a kitchen that has a current health inspection and is supervised by a person with a current food sanitation license;
  • Purchased through a restaurant;
  • Store-bought, pre-packaged food items.

To secure a date, or have additional questions, please contact our Community Engagement Associate, Brooke, at or 815-964-4105 ext 203.
