Volunteers preparing a meal

Meal Programs

Evergreen Lunch & Diner Program

Your team can help us extend a gourmet welcome to youth who have too often been on the short end of love and care!

Evergreen is our centre for street-involved youth, serving good food to approximately 80 to 100 youth daily. Evergreen extends a broad range of services and robust programs to youth; and our meal programs are often a point of entry to better things for youth’s lives!

Through our Evergreen LUNCH and DINNER programs, we provide group volunteer opportunities that also includes a tour of our youth programs and services.

When your organization or group commits to volunteering for our Evergreen LUNCH and DINNER programs, you will help our staff to lovingly prepare and serve a nutritious meal to our youth, and to also help with clean up afterwards.
