Dear All,

Firstly we would like to thank all of you who helped in our kitchen projects at both La Ferme du Bude and Hotel Bel Esperance over the last 6 months. With your help we have produced over 17000 nutritious and balanced meals that were distributed to the city’s most vulnerable people.

With the support of Mater foundation and talented chef Walter el Nager, Serve the City is again looking for volunteers to help in a new kitchen that has been secured at Servette Church, Avenue Wendt 55, Servette.

The project will run from Weds 13th January until Weds 10th February. We are looking for the following volunteers:

Kitchen Helpers

We urgently require 2 helpers to work in our kitchen alongside the chef. The role will involve washing, cutting and prepping of food. The hours of work will be from 0915 to 1515 daily Monday to Friday.

Driver

We also require 1 driver to dispatch food daily. The volunteer would need to use their own car. You would need to collect the food at around 0930am from the kitchen in Servette and drop it off at 2/3 shelters in the city. It should take around 2 hours of time max.

Food Packing at PalExpo

Could still use some help preparing food packs for those who are having economic problems from the epidemic.

With winter temperatures plummeting coupled with the devastating effects of Covid 19 we urgently are calling volunteers to help us with any amount of time they can spare.

Please do sign up on our website for an event that suits you and we wish you a great 2021.

Kind Regards,

The Serve the City team.

We are urgently looking for volunteers to prepare sandwiches from home.and deliver them to a homeless shelter in the city. The project will run Monday to Friday until 15th January. This is a very last minute request due to the urgent need that has arisen. The goal is to make 70 sandwiches on a given day and you will be refunded 70 CHF for expenses. For more information on making and distributing the sandwiches please contact:Simon – by signing up on the STC website Any commitment would be greatly welcomed.

We have some fantastic volunteers jumping in over the holidays to provide sandwiches to the homeless of Geneva.But we could use a few more if you can help out.  As noted, we are looking for 70 sandwiches a week for 3 weeks, you pick the day..But if you can only do one day.. that would be fantastic too.. The homeless more than ever can use your support. Please signup and list your availability.. 
Just  wanted to keep you updated :JdM will be closed on December 25 and December 28.JdM will also be closed on January 1 and January 4

The Holiday challenge…

( December 21, 2020 )

Our take -away meal program has died or at least is on a pause until next year at best. We would like to attempt to bring back to life our sandwich program. Here is the idea.. volunteers will make a three week commitment to make 70 sandwiches a week for 3 weeks. and delivers them by 9:30 to Mt.Brilliant Soup kitchen behind the main train station. STC will contribute with 70 chf a day to help with expenses at the end of the 3 day period. Do sign up as soon as you are ready our website lists your day/s of preference. We don’t know yet about Christmas or New Years Day. Happy Christmas to all and stay safe ..dropping off sandwiches curbside.
