Deliver And Dine: Dinner Hosting


1-2 hours


At our family shelter in Northridge


All year long


Mom, Dad or other grown-up


We rely on our volunteer dinner hosts every night to provide meals for our shelter guests. Dinner hosting at our family shelter helps provide for one of our guests' biggest needs, healthy and regular meals.


We all love a good dinner. Grab your family or a small group of friends and provide dinner for the 30 guests in our family shelter. You provide the meal, serve it, and help clean up. (You can even join the guests and eat with them too!)


Varies depending on meal provided (see instructions).


Changes for Deliver and Dine:

Guest count is 40-80 guests

Groups are 10 or less

Food needs to be catered or prepared in our kitchen or other commercial kitchen.


Decide on a dinner you would like to make and share. To sign up to host or for questions, contact the SFVRM Volunteer Coordinator at or (818) 785-4476.
