Helping to clean up kitchen and eating area after meal
Your team will receive a brief orientation and also the opportunity to enjoy our worship service - you won’t want to miss it!
Plan for 125-150 servings or more.
$1.50-$2.50/serving ($200-$350 total).
Many times it’s possible to get some of the food items donated if you plan ahead and have a connection with a grocery store
We recommend a group of 8-12 people
Our commercial kitchen here at the Life Center will be at your disposal.
We currently have two 6-burner stoves and double convection oven.
The meal could be prepared at your church or home and then brought to the Life Center, if that would be more convenient.
We do not allow red or other strong-colored drinks in the sanctuary - we generally use lemonade for drinks.
Also, we try to stay away from red sauces as much as possible.
This helps us to keep our clean- up costs to a minimum.
