Important Update Regarding Meal Service

*As of October 2022

In-person meal service volunteering will resume across our Santa Clara County and San Mateo County shelters starting in October 2022. Please note that COVID safety protocols are still in place across all LifeMoves shelters.

As LifeMoves returns to in-person meal service, we ask that all volunteers keep in consideration the following guidelines and policies:

  • In-person meal service is not required. If you (and your team) are not yet ready to resume in-person volunteering, you can still just provide and drop-off prepared or catered meals.
  • Only groups of 6-8 volunteers are allowed per meal service.
  • Santa Clara County sites are open for in-person meal service on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays only; San Mateo County sites are open for in-person meal service on Saturdays and Sundays only.
  • Kitchen usage at LifeMoves shelters is currently closed off to volunteers. Please be prepared to bring in your meals hot and ready to serve.
  • If you (and your team) are planning to resume in-person meal service, please plan on following the new sign-in process. More information about the sign-in process will be included in the confirmation email and reminder email you’ll receive after you sign-up.
  • Confirm the COVID vaccination status of your team members prior to your meal service.

*Important Note*
If any of the below conditions apply to you, we ask that you please cancel your meal drop-off:

  • You are feeling unwell in any capacity
  • You have been in recent contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19
  • You have recently traveled outside of the US to countries experiencing an outbreak of COVID-19

We recognize that the Coronavirus poses a risk to our entire community. We are regularly evaluating this evolving situation and will continue to work with medical experts, public health officials, and local government to ensure we are protecting our staff, clients, and community.

Help provide fresh and nutritious food to build a foundation for health and wellness.
