Do you have a SUPER casserole recipe and a group of friends that likes to cook? Help supply meals for Nativity House Shelter by building a casserole team.

This is a great project for volunteers who want to help but might not feel comfortable helping onsite or in a shelter environment. This is a project that works well for church groups, service organizations and friend groups.

Volunteers can cook casseroles offsite. We ask that all casseroles be frozen before delivery and include labeling with an ingredient list, the date the item was frozen and cooking instructions.

How to get started

If you are interested in becoming a casserole team leader, please complete the online volunteer registration form or contact to request a volunteer registration form. Hard copies of registration materials can be mailed to your address. Registration forms can also be sent to you via email or fax.

Group members will be asked to sign a Covid-19 liability waiver even if they do not plan to serve onsite.

Basic Requirements

  • Group leaders must be at least 18 year old & pass a background check
  • Group leaders must become a registered volunteer and attend an orientation
  • Group leaders must have or be willing to obtain a Washington State Food Handlers Permit (the Volunteer Services Program will reimburse the cost of the permit)
  • Everyone who participates must sign a covid-19 liability waiver
  • Everyone must wear gloves when cooking (food safety 101)
