Thursday Lunches At Pioneer Park, Nevada City

In June, our Thursday lunch program moved from First Baptist Church to the Pioneer Park picnic table area. Over this summer, our “lunch bunch” volunteers will continue to bring home cooked dishes to our homeless community lunches. Volunteers also distribute clothes, underwear, socks, and other  items.

“We serve lunch every Thursday from 11:30 to noon,” said program manager Dianne Weichel, “In June the lunch bunch served 114 meals. However,  I just learned one of our team can’t continue for health reasons, so I’m looking to find someone to step forward and join us.”

Volunteers typically commit to show up with one prepared hot meal per month.
