May 13 @ 2:00 pm 5:00 pm

First Pres Berkeley’s Street Meal is on the second and last Saturday of each month, serving nutritious meals to our East Bay neighbors in need. Under COVID-19 restrictions, we are serving to-go meals and hot coffee with minimal volunteers. We hope to offer the meal in dining room again this fall (when we can safely do so), for which we will invite more people to prepare and serve the meal. Sign up here if you’d like to serve!
