Nourishing the Community: Heart & Soul volunteers with Lubbock Impact

Here at Heart & Soul Cuisine, we believe in giving back to our community. That’s why earlier this month, we were happy to have the opportunity to volunteer at Lubbock Impact!

If you don’t know about Lubbock Impact, allow us to introduce you to our favorite local non-profit. Since 2007, Lubbock Impact has served our community by offering a variety of resources, including free meals, clothing, and medical and dental clinics. 

One of their longest-running ministries is their Community Meal. These family-style dinners take place every Wednesday and serve an average of 300 people each week. 

We are big fans of the Community Meal, and it’s probably because, as a catering company, we understand the power of a good meal, and how it can nourish not only a person’s body but their heart and soul, as well.

Now, to share about our experience!

Upon arriving at Lubbock Impact, our team was greeted by other volunteers and staff, who were excited to share the values they hope to bring to the community. Then we all got straight to work, preparing and serving a delicious meal to the most appreciative guests. 

We love how the recipients of the Community Meal are always referred to as “guests” and treated as such, with love and dignity! And the volunteers? They enjoy waiting the tables and checking on the guests, making sure their needs are met, and sharing smiles and heartfelt conversations. 

When the dinner was over and everything had been cleaned up, our team left feeling humbled and thankful. We have been blessed with so much and we are so glad that we can give back.

If you are a fellow local business owner, we would like to challenge you to schedule a time to volunteer at Lubbock Impact. What it will do for you, your staff, and the guests you serve, is priceless.
