About the Event

Thanksgiving Community Meal Volunteer Registration!

On Thursday, November 25, 2021, Mel Trotter Ministries will host a free, traditional Thanksgiving Community Meal for individuals and families experiencing homelessness as well as anyone in the greater Grand Rapids community who is looking for fellowship around a Thanksgiving table.

We can’t have this meal without the hundreds of volunteers who serve! Please register to volunteer for one of the areas listed in the ticket section.


All volunteers must be at least 14-years old. 

To volunteer in the kitchen, volunteers must be at least 18-years old. Each volunteer must register as an individual. All volunteers must be registered to attend.

All volunteers will be required to wear masks throughout their time at the event. Health screening will be done upon arrival. 

Volunteers will also need to be covid tested (negative result) in order to volunteer, the week of the event. We are currently working on the details of this. We will get this communication posted as soon as we can. 

Group Leaders- Everyone in your group must register.  Please email [email protected] with the names of those in your group.  Being placed next to each other is not guaranteed but we will place groups as close as possible. 

Mel Trotter Ministries is committed to the health and safety of our community. Hand sanitizing stations will be available at various locations at the event, including registration and check in. During check in, staff will check you in on a computer and provide your name tag. Our staff is tested on a weekly basis.

Should there be a change in guidelines prior to the event, we will communicate that to everyone who has registered to volunteer.
