Our weekend meals depend on many types of volunteers.  At our breakfast this past weekend we welcomed both Showered and Empowered, a mobile shower service for those experiencing homelessness, and St. Teresa of Calcutta Catholic Community’s Parking Lot Gang, who gives away clothes and toiletries.  The Parking Lot Gang is with us at the breakfast on the second Saturday of the month.

HOW FOLKS HELP: On the second Saturday of each month, members of Paradise Lutheran Church prepare and donate 100 bags with the food that accompanies the main course.  John Schoeppner and Martha Monagan-Hart prepared quiche off-site and brought it to Praise the Lord, the church from which we serve.

If you or a group would like to prepare off-site food for the meals, call head cook Mary Stewart at (727) 397-6107 for information.

COME JOIN US!! As always, we can use on-site volunteers.  Call a friend!  Ask a group!  Forward and post! Mark your calendar!  Meal dates & times for the upcoming four weeks are listed below.

Four of our regular volunteers will not be able to join us this coming weekend, so assistance this Saturday or Sunday will be particularly appreciated.

Any time you volunteer is helpful, but cleanup help is especially needed.

If possible, let me know you are coming, but drop-ins are always welcome!  Reply to this e-mail or call (727) 894-2832.
