Volunteering in the Founder’s Café

aprons

The types of volunteer opportunities that are available here at the Blanchet House are all based around food service.

We serve 3 meals per day Monday thru Saturday (Closed Sunday). Breakfast is from 6:30 am to 7:30 am (arrive by 6:00 am) Lunch is from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm (arrive by 11:00 am) and Dinner service is from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm (arrive by 4:30 pm).

The job assignments we have available to our volunteers are as follows:

  • Cook’s Helper (plating the food)
  • Food Server (bringing the food out to the guests)
  • Busser (clearing the tables of dirty plates and cups)
  • Beverages (keeping the coffee, water and/or juice filled).

We have over 5000 volunteers so the schedule fills up very quickly.  Once you have picked your specific dates and which meal service you would like to volunteer for (breakfast, lunch or dinner) please call Dennis Arnold at 503-226-3911 or email him at darnold@blanchethouse.org.

 We can accept up to 12 volunteers maximum per meal service, unless otherwise stated. No more than 12 please. All volunteers must be on the schedule.
