Sack Lunches

Midvale Family Resource Center

Sack Lunches

Make sack lunches for preschool children staying at the Midvale Family Resource Center. Please check the current number of lunches requested on your service days prior to purchasing food.  Due to security and confidentiality concerns, groups will not be allowed to distribute the lunches to the children. We distribute first to the pre-school age children, and then to the older family members. For detailed guidelines, please see the Health Department’s Food Safety Guide.

Adult To-Go Meals

Pamela Atkinson Resource Center

Adult To-Go Meals

Make to-go meals for the single men at the Pamela Atkinson Resource Center (PARC). Many of the individuals staying at the PARC may be away from the facility during meal times for a variety of reasons – employment, doctor’s appointments, job interviews, housing applications or inspections, etc. – and your generosity helps us to ensure that everyone has a chance to eat.

We do not have any dietary restrictions. 30-50 meals are appreciated, and we can take up to 100. For more detailed guidelines on preparing to-go meals please see the Health Department’s Food Safety Guide.

Prepare & Serve Dinner to Families

Midvale Family Resource Center

Prepare & Serve Dinner to Families

When providing shelter dinners, we kindly ask groups to provide all of the food and paper products needed for your particular dinner. We ask that the food be pre-made and brought to the shelter ready to serve.

  • Please plan on serving approximately 200 individuals. We ask groups to arrive at shelter at 5:00pm to set up and ready to serve by 6:00pm. We have availability on Thursdays and do not offer dinners on the weekends.

The Health Department is no longer requiring permits; however, they are strongly recommending that all food be prepared in a non-residential kitchen. For more detailed guidelines on preparing meals for our families and individuals please see the Health Department’s Food Safety Guide.
