Meal Donor


  • Time: 5:30-7:30pm
  • Commitment: Please come with a pre-cooked meal, ready to heat up and feed residents plus yourselves. This meal can be homemade by your group, potluck style, or even takeout from a local restaurant!
  • Number of people to feed: 22 residents (7 adults, 15 kids) + 1-2 staff members
  • Max number of volunteers in your group: 8
  • Allergies: One of our children has a nut allergy. Please exclude any and all nuts from food items, and desserts. Thank you!


Location: Door of Hope is located at 669 N. Los Robles Ave, Pasadena 91101.

Time: Our families start dinner at 6pm so make sure to arrive early enough to have everything set up buffet line style by then. Have your group plan to stay until 7:15-30pm to help our families clean up and play with our kids!

Tour: If your group would like a brief tour before dinner, please let me know and we will do our best to have myself or our executive director, Rev. Megan Katerjian, meet you at 5:30pm to show you around the house!

What else to bring: We would love it if you could bring utensils, plates, napkins, drinks (no sodas please), and cups. If your group wants to, you can also bring an activity, game or craft and ask the kids if they want to participate!

Eating with our families: As a meal donor, you are not only providing our families with food, but also with conversation and relationship. Don’t be afraid to interact with our families on a personal level. We want you to interact, engage and establish relationships with our families.

Photos: To ensure privacy of our families we ask that you try your best to not take photos throughout the night!

Parking: Street parking can be found on Los Robles Ave or Parke Street (one street south of Orange Grove)
