Meal Sponsorship

Welcome and thank you for visiting. Meals offer stability and well-being for our men experiencing homelessness. Knowing our men can count on their next meal makes a tremendous difference in helping to focus on housing. 

We serve FIVE meals a day EVERY day between two shelters. That’s 1,825 meals annually! We are incredibly grateful to our hundreds of volunteers  who join us to help serve these meals.

Sponsor A Meal – $500WFU

A donation of $500 can provide one nutritious 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!
