For the past five years Feed Cheney has been uniting our community through food and service offered with dignity and respect. Feed Cheney happens the last Monday of the month with the exception of May. (In May Feed Cheney is the third Monday not to conflict with Memorial Day)
Dinner is served from 5:30-6:30 pm and groceries are available at the same time. We offer many volunteer opportunities before, during and after each monthly event.
Volunteer opportunities the day of the event are in three shifts and include set up, service and clean up. Other volunteer positions include musicians, photographers, social media, graphic arts, event reminder phone calls. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer or call 498-9250 and your phone number will be forwarded to the Feed Cheney volunteer coordinator.
