PATH Cooks - Volunteer Group

PATH Cooks 

Goal: PATH Cooks is a volunteer program providing home-cooked meals to the residents living in PATH’s interim housing facilities. Each year, PATH spends more than $200,000 on food for the people we serve. When your group provides meals, it helps us focus our resources on providing housing and support services for our residents.

  • Dinner is served every day at 6:00 p.m. sharp. Cooks arrive between 3:00 and 4:30 p.m., depending on the menu and required preparation time.

Group Size:  6 -10 volunteers (must be at least 18+ to work in the kitchen and 13+ with signed parent release to serve)

Location: 1250 6th Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101.

Clients: PATH San Diego, along with several partners, opened Connections Housing in 2013. Connections Housing is an integrated service and residential community in Downtown San Diego, designed to help local homeless individuals rebuild their lives and move into permanent housing.


Budget: Costs vary depending on a group’s capacity and menu. Plan to serve about 130 individuals.
