Additional Volunteer opportunities:

Dinner with Grace: A collaborative ministry between Grace Cathedral and ECS
Through the preparation and sharing of a healthy meal, Dinner with Grace builds community, engenders empathy, ends isolation and combats loneliness for those served. Volunteers gather once a month to cook a filling, healthy meal and serve it with style to residents of the Mentone Hotel and the Crosby Hotel (housing programs of ECS) in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco. The mission of Dinner with Grace is simple, yet transformative: bring diverse people together to discover their common humanity, and feed hungry bodies and souls. Find out more or sign up to serve here.
