Volunteering @ The DI

You make it possible to serve meals, run programs, operate our facilities, and care for vulnerable clients.

Sponsor a Meal

DI Lunch Service VolunteersA wonderful way to support the DI Community is through meal sponsorship. Our goal is to have a sponsor for every meal we serve. The sponsoring individual or group may also come to the centre and serve the meal to our clients. This is a powerful experience for a family, church, corporation or community group.

It is a great option for team building, while providing a huge benefit to our clients and staff.



Number of Volunteers Needed Volunteers are not required to prepare the meal however we invite you or your group to come serve the meal you have sponsored. 2-30+ volunteers
Volunteer times If you choose to serve the meal please be here 20-25 minutes prior to the start of the meal.
