St. Francis Table at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in downtown Atlanta is in need of volunteers to assist in their food program to feed the hungry. Each Saturday, St. Francis may feed as many as 500 people.
Volunteers should expect a variety of job assignments in preparation of a buffet-style setup in the dining hall. The food is either donated by or purchased from the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Please remember those who may be homeless and looking for their next meal or place of shelter. Your time & talent is much appreciated!
