FOOD LINE CLOSED
Re-opening July 4th
The Food Line will remain closed from March 18th until July 3rd due to COVID-19.

We now make 350 "to-go" dinners on Wed. and Sat. nights. We have teamed up with a group of young folks at Water & Solidarity who were giving out food to the homeless but lost their kitchen access. We prep, cook, and pack meals in "to-go" containers. Water & Solidarity picks up and distributes them at Care Complex.

On Sat., April 4, Julia made chili! She ladled it into the "to-go" containers, then Henry (left) put cheese on top of the chili and added a slice of garlic bread. Gary (right) put a spoon in each, closed them and stacked them in crates.
