Cook It Up: Mealtime at Clark Center (age 18+) *Hands On*

Hands On Managed projects offer you an opportunity to join a group of volunteers on a done-in-a-day project led by a Hands On Volunteer Leader

Join a dynamic team of volunteers to prepare, cook and serve dinner to the residents of Transition Projects’ Clark Center! Using items available in the Clark Center's food pantry in combination with items provided by volunteers, we'll prepare the meal together and serve it to the residents in this 90-bed transitional housing shelter for men.

Volunteers will be asked to bring ingredients to contribute to the meal and the group will prepare dinner on-site to serve to the men living at the Clark Center. The volunteer leader will contact each volunteer to instruct you on what ingredients to bring.

We're counting on you! It is imperative that if you sign up for this project, you intend to be there and provide the ingredients that are assigned to you. When volunteers don't show up, we're not able to make the meal. If you are unable to attend, please let your Volunteer Leader know ASAP!

Please note: No volunteer will be turned away due to lack of resources. If bringing a food item is a hardship for you, please alert the project leader.

Note: Many people have trouble finding the Clark Center. It is located under the Hawthorne bridge near the corner of Hawthorne and Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., in Southeast Portland.

Project Requirements:

  • Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older to attend this project.

  • If you plan to bring guests you MUST reserve slots for them. The best way to do this is to create a Volunteer Team, then sign up your team for this project.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: You are responsible for ensuring that everyone signed up through your team attends - only sign up team members who have confirmed their availability. Teams that repeatedly sign up, but do not show up or show up with fewer volunteers than they signed up, may be removed.
