I was a volunteer at OSL, it was one of the most fulfilling experiences I have had! The staff there are so passionate about what they do and they were so patient and willing to share their experiences with our group. All items used in their dishes are organic and even the cleaning of the produce is with organic cleaning products. The amount of people that are fed and how organized they have this operation is amazing! I would definately volunteer again.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how everything came together and how organized everything was. From the cleaniness of the kitchen to the outside feeding area set up! Everything was set up so quickly and taken down after service.

The high school students I chaperoned were very moved and inspired by this experience. I'm sure they benefited as much, if not more, than those who were served.

someone close to me recommended that I volunteer with OSL. I began to work with OSL during the summer and part of the fall of this year. the staff are great and genuinely care about the volunteers and those they serve. There were many days that I came even though I was not really up to it. Every time I pressed my way it was worth it and I left uplifted. The people I served were well mannered and grateful for the work I had put in; I loved all the compliments. I was also amazed at the quality foods they have a habit of using I have never seen an non-profit organization responsible for feeding the homeless care so much about quality as well as quantity. I plan to continue working with OSL and would gladly tell others about them with no hesitation.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I enjoyed learning techniques, recipes, and meeting new people.I love to cook so what better way to give and meet new people than though the joy of food.
