The Damiano Center has closed the building and most programs, but continues to serve meals for all who are hungry. We are offering to-go meals in the parking lot on the west side of the building during Community Kitchen meal times, and on the east side of the building for kids and their families during Kids' Kitchen meal times.
Community Kitchen meals are served Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat, and Sun:
Breakfast 8:30 am – 9:30 am
Lunch 11:30 am – 1 pm
Dinner 5 pm – 6 pm (Fri, Sat, and Sun only)
Kids' Kitchen meals are served Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu from 3 PM to 6 PM.
Meals are bagged and placed on tables for guests to pick up in order to practice social distancing. Anyone who is hungry may take a meal, and we are allowing people to take multiple meals, within reason, for homebound family or friends. We also have free bakery items to take home, hygiene packs for those who need them, and are giving coats and other outerwear when requested. All of these activities take place outdoors and the building is locked except to authorized staff and volunteers.
If you are interested in volunteering:
Volunteers work in the kitchen to prep and clean-up. They may go home before meal service begins, or may assist with meal service.
Staff and volunteers are following all Health Department guidelines in food safety and hygiene, including wearing gloves.
Staff and volunteers are being monitored daily for signs of illness, and are sent home if they have any symptoms.
Bagged meals are set on the table for guests to pick up in order to maintain social distancing.
