Feeding the Hungry

 
At the Thursday Night Community Meals at St. Johns UMC, we host a free nutritious meal in a safe, friendly, and caring environment to a diverse group of clients at-risk of hunger and some who are suffering from homelessness. Most of the diners live along the West Nashville corridor and Charlotte Avenue, although some regularly travel across town from other neighborhoods.
 
Volunteers help with last minute preparations, serve the meal, help clean up and hopefully, chat with our guests.
 
Please wear comfortable, casual clothing.

Hands On Nashville, our community partners, and dedicated volunteers like you are working to meet urgent needs while heeding the most up-to-date local, state, and federal health guidelines regarding slowing the spread of COVID-19. Here are the measures HON has put in place:

 

• Volunteer project groups are capped at 10 people. For this reason, it’s crucial that volunteers who sign up to attend actually do so. 

• Volunteers who feel unwell or who have been exposed to someone who is sick should not attend projects. 

• Volunteers who attend projects should take recommended safety precautions. These include maintaining distances between yourself and other people, practicing hand-washing and sanitation of spaces, wearing gloves and other protective gear, etc. As always, consult a medical professional should you begin to feel unwell at any point during or after a project.

 

If you decide not to attend a project for any reason, please log in to your hon.org account and remove yourself from the opportunity ahead of time so that another volunteer may have a chance to fill your slot. If you have any trouble with this, please email hon@hon.org and we’ll be happy to help!
