Opportunity Details

Preparers and Servers of Thursday Lunches, and Clothing DistributionOLD

Since 2010, Sierra Roots has provided nutritious hot meals every week on Thursdays in Nevada City. Typically, an average of 35 homeless participants attend.

Volunteers bring a dish of their choice once a month.  We serve a meat protein, vegetarian protein, vegetable, salad and dessert.  Five volunteers are at each lunch with their dishes and they stay and serve.

In addition, we take down what our homeless participants’ needs are. For instance, boots and shoes are a common need, because they walk around so much—miles every day, wearing out their shoes. We distribute shoes, boots, new socks, and other clothes at all our lunches.

Lunches and clothing distribution take place at two locations, depending on time of year.

  • At Pioneer Park in Nevada City, at picnic area near horseshoe pit, from approximately June-September.
  • At the First Baptist Church, 300 Main St, Nevada City, from approximately October-May.
