One of our most important programs, the weekly hot lunches, are essential to our goal of building community with our homeless participants.
Through service with the hungry and homeless, we build relationships and a sense of community twice a week, all year round, rain or shine. Every Thursday we serve a hot nutritious meal provided by our volunteers. The food we serve is homemade, with a meat dish, vegetarian protein, salad, vegetable, dessert and milk. Portable snacks are provided through the Food Bank of Nevada County.
Sierra Roots meals are served November through May at the First Community Church in Nevada City and June through October at Pioneer Park picnic area.
We also provide basic toiletries, new socks every week, and clothing every other week. Join the Sierra Roots “Lunch Bunch” volunteers for a rewarding time. New volunteers are always welcome, and always appreciated.
