Help with Lunch

Friends of 40 Prado sponsors lunch at the 40 Prado Homeless Services Center on the third Friday of every month. We provide the food for a hot lunch and we often help serve the meal as well. You can help us by providing one or more of the Lunch Items (see below), volunteering to help us serve lunch…or both!

Lunch Items

6 meat lasagnas
3 veggie lasagnas
80-100 buttered rolls
6 gallons milk
150 cookies
Case bananas – 40lbs purchased 2 days ahead, keep in your trunk to ripen
3 large bags salad
3 large bottles salad dressing
Food items should be delivered to the back door at 40 Prado by 11:30 a.m., ready to serve. Servers should arrive by 11:45 a.m. 

Next Lunch is Friday, February 19


When you invest in the community by making a gift through Friends of 40 Prado, you know you are helping to improve people’s lives and that you’re building a stronger community right here in San Luis Obispo County. 40 Prado relies on financial support from the community for daily operations, weekend hours, the children’s program, general supplies, facility repairs, and maintenance.

  • Donations by check should be payable to “Friends of 40 Prado.”
