Donate a Meal this November
It seems very fitting that November is National Gratitude Month. In a month dedicated to giving thanks, we are encouraged to embrace the power of gratitude. Gratitude is more than simply saying “thank you.” Gratitude’s amazing powers have the ability to shift us from focusing on the negative to appreciating what is positive in our lives. And we have a lot to be thankful for!
We are grateful for the ongoing support we receive from individuals, church groups, businesses, and other organizations who, month after month, help us feed our homeless guests.
We have a number of open meal slots we need help filling during November. For breakfast we serve between 40-60 guests, and for lunch we serve around 60 guests. Meal services are at 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., respectively.
Here are the open dates, as well as some of our guests’ favorite foods, and a link to some frequently asked questions. We welcome your help and are happy to answer any questions you may have. Thank you!
