Let’s Get Cookin’ With CASPAR!

Cookin’ With CASPAR is an impactful and inspiring group volunteer and team-building opportunity that has helped hundreds of our homeless neighbors in and around Cambridge through that most universal of traditions: the breaking of bread.

Your corporate or community group can become part of the growing list of supporters who have joined us at CASPAR’s Emergency Services Shelter in Cambridge—which serves close to 100,000 meals a year—to prepare, cook and serve a meal to the approximately 110 shelter guests we welcome every night. The result? A fun afternoon activity that makes a tangible, positive difference in the lives of our shelter guests.

By participating in Cookin’ With CASPAR and sponsoring a meal, your group will support our agency’s nutrition program at the Shelter, and for our FirstStep Street Outreach team. These life-saving efforts play a crucial role in supporting Cambridge’s homeless population, and the act of offering a meal can be the starting point that allows CASPAR to connect our guests with additional services—with the goal of transitioning people from the street and out of homelessness.

The generous donation of your time and talent goes far beyond a full stomach for one night. Your kindness helps people who often try to be invisible feel seen, important, and valued as individuals.
