Provide Meals
Volunteers are needed to provide lunch and dinner on the weekends and occasionally during the week. Individuals drop off prepared meals from home or local restaurants. Volunteers can pick one meal a month or be on a rotating schedule with another volunteer. Contact our food services manager, Bridgette Fredrick at bfredrick@gwinnettchildrenshelter.org to get on our schedule. Thank you!
