Guidelines for hosts On the last Monday of each month, volunteer hosts prepare a healthy meal for the community supper in Greenville. Supper is served from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m., at 206 Pine St. in Greenville. Hosts are responsible for meal planning, preparation, set-up, serving and clean-up. Hosts may also purchase the meal ingredients, or there is a fund that can be used. Sponsoring hosts should have from four to eight volunteers. Meals typically serve 80 - 100 people, including children. One or two volunteers can usually handle set-up, includ- ing placement of tables and chairs, utensils and bever- ages. Three to five people can usually prepare the meal, and about three or four can do the serving. Clean-up can usually be accomplished quickly with two to five volunteers.
