Storefront is a teen homeless shelter in Hillcrest, affiliated with San Diego Youth Services. It is located at 3427 4th Ave (between Walnut and Upas). We need 2 or 3 volunteers to provide dinner for up to 12 people on the 2nd Thursday of each month.
There are now three ways of providing food for the youth:
1. Arrange for hot delivered meals, such as pizza, burgers, or other restaurant-prepared food items to be delivered to Storefront. You can tell the coordinator that you will select the food from a favorite place, or you can let the kids pick from a take-out menu, and the coordinator will text you their order.
Call in and pay for the order and arrange for delivery. Contact your partner so that they can send you a check for 1/2 the amount.
2. If you would prefer to prepare the meal and deliver it yourself, Storefront is now accepting home-cooked meals, and home-baked goodies. Frozen foods that can be easily heated are also okay, but deliver earlier, allowing for cooking time.
3. Purchase grocery store gift cards (Vons, Ralphs or Albertsons) and deliver them 2 days in advance to allow for shopping time; be sure to inform them which day they are for.
Please call the shelter directly at 619-325-3527 for information on the current number of teens. All food donations are very much appreciated!
