- 24/7 Dad Classes - Help serve meals (Currently we are teaching these classes online during COVID restrictions so we are not serving meals. If you want volunteer to help with meals when we return to the classroom, let us know and we'll keep you informed. Use Contact Us below)
We teach 24/7 Dad classes twice a week on a regular basis from 6:30 to 9:00 PM. Most of our students work during the day so to assure they have time to get to class without skipping dinner, we provide a nutritious meal at 6:30. This also gives the class an opportunity to fellowship and talk with our staff. We need help preparing. procuring and delivering meals for our classes so that the class Facilitators have time to prepare for each session. We currently serve about 20 meals per class session. Although home cooked meals are appreciated, we sometimes serve food from local grocers or restaurants like fried chicken, pizza, Asian take out or we buy prepared food that just needs to be heated like Costco Lasagna or Chicken Alfredo all of which are appreciated and enjoyed. SpoFI pays for the food costs, we mostly need cooks or folks to pick up and deliver the food. If you'd like to help or want additional information just click the button below.
