Meal & Greeter Info
THANK YOU FOR VOLUNTEERING TO PROVIDE FOOD FOR or GREET OUR HABITAT VOLUNTEERS! HERE ARE SOME BASIC GUIDELINES TO HELP YOU PREPARE.
Meal Guidelines (there really aren’t any!)
Workers arrive on site to work at 8am for Friday/Saturday build days. Lunch is at 12 noon.
Each day, we hope to have anywhere from 10-35 volunteers, depending on what we are working on at the time. Sometimes we have more, sometimes less.
I can give you a better estimate of workers if you want to call the office the week of the date you’ve selected. Otherwise, we go on Faith. (419-335-7000) Habitat can pitch in and provide some food too.
Workers appreciate the meal more than you know. Just about anything you’d like to provide is good.
MAIN COURSES: Hotdogs/chilidogs, shredded chicken sandwiches, BBQ beef sandwiches, taco salad, sub sandwiches, pizza, casseroles, sloppy joes. (think “church potluck” and you’ll please the masses!)
SIDES: chips, cheesy potatoes, fruit, veggie trays, cheese, pasta salads, potato or macaroni salad, cottage cheese, applesauce.
DESSERTS: can’t go wrong here… brownies, cookies, cake, etc.
We have plastic-ware and paper plates/napkins on site. If you are bringing something that requires Styrofoam bowls, please let us know and we’ll have them.
We do not have a refrigerator, so cannot store items early. We provide water and Gatorade.
We will have a table to set up on; we pray and let the workers go through the line. If enough is provided, we let them know they can go back for more. You are welcome to join us! We appreciate you, and the workers enjoy socializing during the lunch break.
Another need we have on every build day is for a Greeter. This person arrives on the job site 15 minutes before the start of every day and sets up the greeting area. Although this person doesn’t have to lift a hammer, it is a vitally important position. Some of the things the Greeter does includes: greeting volunteers, making sure they sign waivers and sign in/out, putting drinks in the cooler and reminding workers to get a drink every couple of hours, handing out t-shirts and helping to set up lunch. Typically the Greeter can leave at 1-2pm, but you are welcome to stay all day. Please let us know if you or anyone with your group is interested in being the Greeter on some of our build days.

Thank you for helping Habitat for Humanity give a Hand UP to another local family in need!
