“God's Kitchen” is a facility operated by a group of churches in Corona. It provides shelter for homeless women and children and food for the homeless and needy. The daily evening meal is prepared and served by a volunteer group, typically from one of the local churches in Corona. ISCN has undertaken to volunteer for this service on the fifth Wednesday of any month that has five Wednesdays, which typically means their turn comes up around four times a year.
The food to be served is prepared using ingredients already available at the Kitchen (typically donated). The menu typically consists of a salad, an entree, a side dish, bread, dessert, and a drink and is decided in advance by their staff. About one hundred people typically partake of the evening meal.
Please help by volunteering for this service. Use the form below to sign up.
The attached guidelines contain further information and details. Please download and read them before your first turn.
