Feeding the Spirit is supported by sponsors, donors and volunteers who are drawn to and believe in our mission. Sponsors are local restaurants, groups and individuals that either subsidize a meal or provide the resources and materials necessary for our weekly gathering. Donors are friends and community members who contribute financially in this same spirit of care and commitment so that Feeding the Spirit may continue to provide to those in need. Volunteers give selflessly of their time and energy each week in order to feed the bodies and spirits of our weekly guests. They also nourish their own spirits in return by witnessing the joy and camaraderie that cannot be described, but can only be experienced by attending a meal.
Sponsor a meal
You can feed approximately 115 men, women and children by sponsoring a meal--either by providing the funds necessary or by preparing yourself or with friends. If you are an area restaurant or local group or organization, we welcome the opportunity to tell you more about Feeding the Spirit and how you can help.
As Feeding the Spirit is run exclusively by volunteers, you can contribute monetarily, with the assurance that 100% of your contribution will be used to provide weekly meals and many of our other services such as rent assistance, temporary housing, utility assistance, copays and medication costs. Online payments are accepted securely through Paypal and are tax deductible.
If you want to truly appreciate what we do and you desire a truly rewarding experience, you can volunteer at our weekly meal by simply showing up any Thursday. Our core group is united by genuine compassion and a strong desire to give back to our community. We promise that when you leave after the Thursday night meal, your spirit will soar and you will be forever changed.
