Meal Sponsorship

Welcome and thank you for visiting this page. Meals for all of us offer stability and well-being. And especially for our men who are experiencing homelessness, knowing they can count on their next meal makes a tremendous difference in helping to focus on housing.

Every day between our two campuses, we provide five meals. That’s 1,825 meals annually!

We’re grateful to our hundreds of volunteers annually who join us to help serve these meals.

Sponsor A Meal – $500WFU

A sponsorship is $500 to provide one nutrition meal for up to 350 men between our two campuses.  

How To Contribute

Donating Food

While we’d like to welcome all food donations, we’re more likely to use your donation if the food is packaged with an expiration date and is larger in bulk. Remember for our meals, we might be serving up to 200 men at one time.

A number of groups either prepare food in bulk and bring for when they serve or use our kitchen to make the food on the day they are serving.

We must be diligent about the donated food we use not only for the safety of our men, but to comply with some funding mandates. No one wants to waste food, but please consider what you are bringing to our men and whether we’re realistically able to serve it to them. We also ask that you please do not deliver food during our peak meal serving times (11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m daily).

Got questions about donating food? Email our Philanthropy Team or call 704-334-3187 ext. 109. Thank you!
