What to Expect

Food

Hands On provides the food; volunteers cook it. Each night there is an opportunity for volunteers to sign up to prepare meals. Meals range from the classics - burgers and hot dogs - to Thai food and crawfish boils. What we eat depends on the creativity of our volunteer cooks.

Typically breakfast is ready at 7:00 am. and dinner at 6:30 pm. Depending on where you work, you might eat lunch at the Salvation Army or take your lunch along with you.

We have a full kitchen, so volunteers can address special dietary needs and prepare their own meals as needed.

Our Base

Our volunteer population ranges from 60-200. We ask that everyone pitch in occasionally to help cook, clean or do other tasks that make our work possible.

We're housed on the grounds of the Beauvoir United Methodist Church. Inside the conference center, we have sleeping spaces in the loft and community space on the first floor. Outside, we have four showers and space for camping. It's also where we have the puppies, our "stage," and the drum set. Laundry facilities are provided as well.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO SUPPORT THE LOCAL ECONOMY BY PATRONIZING RESTAURANTS, YOU'RE MORE THAN WELCOME TO, BUT HANDS ON CANNOT COVER THE EXPENSE.
