Restaurant Take Out Team

Restaurants, please download our Take Out Team Brochure!

Local Restaurants have so much to offer our community! We are so thankful for each and every one of you. If you feel led to partner in a bigger way with the Mission, we have a great opportunity!

Restaurants….become a “Take Out Team” member… It’s easy!

  • Commit to providing a lunch meal for our Mission Clients once a month or so (generally that is a meal for 150—200 people at our Emergency Shelter. 962 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd Youngstown, Ohio 44510).
  • You can either prepare the meal for take out and we will pick it up or even better, bring it to the Mission with a team of your coworkers. There are volunteer opportunities to serve the meal alongside our clients and staff. It’s a great team building experience and really will give you a great sense that you made a difference!
  • We will have the serving utensils, food trays, volunteers to help unload, warming table and a clean up team all ready to go. You only bring the meal (and help serve if you like).

As a Take Out Team Restaurant…

  • Your food donation is 100% tax deductible and we can provide you with a receipt.
  • We will feature your restaurant name in our dining hall, on our website and in social media.
  • You’ll get to know our volunteers, staff and clients and see firsthand how God is working in Youngstown.
  • You have the opportunity to volunteer to serve the meal as well.
