Community Cooks

Community Cooks provides one way students can complete their Service Credit for High School. The shelters that Menlo serves include two shelters in the LifeMoves program (formerly known as InnVision Shelter Network): First Steps for Families (a family shelter) in San Mateo and Maple Street Shelter (an adult shelter) in Redwood City.

  • Approximately four hours from 2:30-6:30pm

  • Sign-up in advance (at least one week)

  • Permission forms required as transportation from the host home to the shelter will be provided by Menlo approved parent drivers.
