Youth Participation Guidelines:

We appreciate and support youth involvement in community service, and the opportunity to expose youth to a condition of life different from their own. Our youth participation guidelines help provide a safe and efficient work environment while maintaining the dignity of our guests. The following age breakdowns are suggested best practices. However, because each dining site is different, Site Coordinators may make exceptions at their discretion and with parental input and permission.

Youth 16 years of age and older can help in all areas of the dining sites.

Volunteers aged 15 and younger may handle cold food on the serving line as well as cold beverages.

Youth age 13 to 15 must have one adult to every five youth for supervision purposes.

Youth age 12 and under need to have direct one-on-one supervision. It is suggested that children under the age of 8 do not attend unless prior arrangements are made with the dining site’s coordinator.

Testimonial: “This Experience is a Gift!”

“I initially came to Holy Rosary for Loaves and Fishes to serve with a Honeywell work group. What I did not realize was how powerful the experience would be! As guest after guest passed, with big smiles, many with sadness in their eyes, thanking us for serving them….by the end of the first night I felt as though I should be thanking them for the amazing feelings that washed over me. For this reason, my daughter and I have been back twice more and will be back many more times, and with the rest of our family, too. This experience is a gift!” -Katrina
