Provide a meal:
Providing or preparing a home-cooked meal for Hope’s Harbor guests can be a rewarding way to support our families.
Meals can be prepared in our beautiful gourmet kitchen using our fully-stocked pantry, provided by a catered restaurant or prepackaged from a grocery store. It is required that all food be prepared in a commercial kitchen.
You are typically preparing a meal for approximately 10 people at the Lutheran Campus House and 8 people at the Dupont Campus House.
