1. Sit Down Thanksgiving Dinners: This team will host a THanksgiving Dinner indoors for those who come in off the street. They will be greeted with volunteers and have an experience of a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. This is a very intimate experience with the those who live in the area, mostly those without homes.
2 & 3 -Kitchen: Those who sign up for KITCHEN will prepare all the food for 10,000 meals. Over 3000 lbs of turkey (turkey and turkey breast) will come through this kitchen. Deboning turkey, cooking mashed potatoes, cooking slicing and chopping vegetables. Any level of experience welcome. This is the job that requires volunteers to move quick, work well with others and is the first team to get started for the day. Will most likely miss the day's orientation and volunteer briefing.
4. SECURITY: This team will help with crowd control. Often time with large events it's nice to have some volunteers to help with keeping the volunteers who are overly excited to serve and the overly excited recipients calm and organized as there is an order to the day. SFCI prides it self in making sure the community gets blessed on this day and needs security to make sure this happens smoothly. We need strong, orderly yet kind volunteers for this job.
5. Groceries: This group will prepare and pass out over 500 bags of groceries to those who attend our block party.
6. Registration/Greeters - This team helps greet those in standing in line to receive groceries and meals. We would like volunteers who are outgoing and like to meet new people. This is a great time to get to know the people in the lines and spend time chatting with them to make the time go by faster as they wait.
7. Community Host/Ushers: This team will be the group who will host and usher our community guest into our block party. We have a 15 minute service to introduce SFCI and celebrate and encourage them as they come in.
8. Get Connected: A designated group of people who will meet all the residents and help them by offering them prayer and referrals to places they might need.
9-15. Adopt a Building Thanksgiving Dinners: These groups are part of the SFCI's Adopt a Building department and these small groups will go into the surrounding builidngs and have a small Thanskgiving party in the apartments or apartments community room. This is a good way to get to know the residents in the Tenderloin Community.
16-17. Meal Prep: will be held in two locations, each location is half a block away from each other. This whole event is based on getting Hot Thanksgiving Dinners to 10,000 people who have signed up in advance for these meals. The meal delivery job is an assembly line formation and theres always a lot of energy in this team. If you are planning on bringing kids, this is a fun place for them to help and theres usually more space for them to roam in case they get a little bored.
230 Jones Street: is located on Jones Street the main campus
of SF City Impact between Eddy St and Turk Street. The meal
prep area can accomodate up to 50 people
KROC CENTER: is located at 140 Turk Street, between Jones St
and Leavenworth Street. The Kroc Center/ Salvation Army
has offered its facilities to SFCI to help us serve the 10,000 meals
to the Tenderloin Community. It's a beautiful facility. The meal
prep area will be held in the gymnasium.
18-47: Meal Delivery - These groups are whats going to get all the food to the people. All deliveries are done by foot. Vehicles are not necessary, however, if there are few peole that would like to drive, please let your leader on that day know. They will arrange for your group to take the meals that are furthest away. Families and those who like dont want to be confined to one area love this task. All meals are carried in bannana boxes to the assigned builidings.
Often times, it might seem as if you're waiting around, however, this is the nature of the job. ALL the Meal Prep teams are doing their best to pump out the meals. So please be patient. This job is vital to getting the job done!
We hope you have a great time and let's make this a holiday that the
Tenderloin Community wont ever forget!
