We enlist the talents of a diverse mix of local volunteers and restaurants to serve and prepare the evening meals. Each evening, a host will be present to add a warm touch to the nourishing and delicious meals. Most dietary concerns can be accommodated, given prior notice. Dinnertime also provides an excellent opportunity to relax and share the day's experiences. After dessert, all guests help with the cleaning and washing up. Each evening holds a different theme for appetizers and dinners. Below is a sample of previous menus. We may vary from the specific menu items below but we will aim to stay true to the quality and tastiness of past Volunteer Vacations. Island Delights Fresh fruit tray with pineapple, grapes, kiwi, oranges, and watermelon. Barbecued
Chicken Teriyaki & Rice. Vegetable Stir-Fry. Key Lime Pie.
Italian Cuisine Antipasto Tray with melon, ham, crackers and cheese with Chicken Cacciatore with
Linguine Noodles, Spinach Salad and Italian bread and a Fruit Tort for dessert.

"Thank you so much for making our meals so much fun! You're both an inspiration!!" "I liked the fajitas/soft tacos best because of the barbecued chicken and steak. The fresh tortillas and Steve's famous refried beans were a treat." "Loved the homemade desserts – Would like to hire the cook, except I know I probably could not afford her." "Tres Leches Cake – Fun, Yummy!" "They cooked a special meatless dish just for me." "The salmon was delicious along with the shrimp. Thai peanut curry went well."
