Table Of Plenty And How To Do Volunteer Work

By Donald Perry

There are many organizations that are trying to help the Community in any way they can. These usually comes in the form of voluntary work where they serve dinner, build housing and other things that can assist those in need. These groups are able to do this with the help of others who donate their money and time to their vision.

The most common of this voluntarism that can be found in communities are free dinners for those that are experiencing hardships. An example of this is the organization Table of Plenty HMB which serves dinner on Thursdays every week. They serve those struggling financially, just recently lost a job, elderly, homeless and others in Half Moon Bay, CA and areas nearby.

Food preparation is done by the volunteers with donations coming from others in the form of ingredients or finances. Ingredients that they use in cooking sometimes came from homegrown plants in gardens of people from the community. The meat sometimes even came from animals raised by them and other organizations lending their assistance.

Uniforms are being worn by the volunteers with a smile on their face while serving those eating inside their dinner hall. Tables are covered in linen clothe and in its center are flowers decorating it with beautiful musical background playing. This give an ambiance of being inside a classy restaurant which majority of them might have not, will not or will not again experience going to.

You can be part of this as a volunteer as well by just approaching the one in charge and telling them of your wish to do so. This is a very great activity for your children to do as most of them like the experience they had. Both children and adults alike will become more aware of the need of the unfortunate members of the community.

If you wish to organize one in your own community something like this, you can do so and help those around you. First, you must gather like minded individuals that have similar intentions as you and create your own group to start the planning. Approaching the local church would also help you get more assistance from its members in your new mission.

Next, find a big enough place that can accommodate many people that will be eating meals served by you. The local church may have an available space large enough for this purpose so try to ask them if they have and they are willing to let you use. If no space is available in there then try approaching and asking the community public school for the availability of their gym for this.

After finding a place for this then start deciding on what meals to serve. It would be easier for you if you would cook something that a lot of people can eat. Healthy foods are the better choice with other options for those unable to eat particular type of food.

Call on more volunteers and assigned tasks to everyone on what they will be doing. This is usually divided between the cooks and servers but they can still help each other whenever possible. Set the schedule of this meal and announce it for the people to know.
