Volunteer Guidelines for serving a meal

Volunteers must be 13 years or older to work in the kitchen or pour beverages. Volunteers ages 10-12 or younger may wash tables and carry trays. We ask that parents use their own discretion about whether their child will be able to stay at that task for one and a half hours. Young children must be closely supervised by their parents at all times for their own personal safety.
