Effective MARCH 1, 2021:
Our Street Outreach Center will be transitioning back to our pre-COVID hours beginning March 1, 2021. Due to this change, drop off times will vary. Please see below for drop off processes. Drop off times are also listed on each day’s specific signup. We will still be accepting catered options only until futher notice.
Due to COVID-19 precautions, we are asking for all meals to be either a catered option or store-bought frozen option. All meals need to feed 25 youth. Please see below for the specific process unique to each option.
Individually wrapped and sealed side items are perfectly fine -- rolls, pudding, fruit cups, chips, etc. Drinks are not required, but are certainly welcomed!
*All donations are tax deductible.
CATERED OPTION PROCESS:
Drop off/delivery for catered meals is 12:00 (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) and 2:00 (Tuesday, Thursday) at 2602 Harney.
Pizza, Hy-Vee, deli trays, local restaurants, or other catered/delivery options are great! Please note, some of our youth do not eat meat and/or specific types of meat. If you are willing to provide a smaller, meatless option (or side items), we would be most appreciative!
If you are having your meal delivered and wish to tip the driver, please do so when placing your order as our staff cannot add a tip or sign upon delivery. Individuals can deliver their meals as long as they are not experiencing any symptoms (100.4+ fever, cough, congestion, difficulty breathing, etc.) and the meal itself has been prepared by a restaurant/food source.
FROZEN OPTION PROCESS:
Drop off/delivery for frozen meals is 10:30 (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) and 12:30 (Tuesday, Thursday) to allow staff enough time to bake meal prior to the center’s opening.
Frozen Stouffer’s meals or casseroles prepared by grocery stores/restaurants work great! Please note, some of our youth do not eat meat and/or specific types of meat. If you are willing to provide a smaller, meatless option (or side items), we would be most appreciative!
We rely heavily on our meal volunteers and donors. If you are no longer able to provide a meal or will be running late, please let us know as soon as possible.
Please contact Maren Larsen at [email protected] if you have any questions at all.
Thank you for your commitment to our mission, our youth, and our meal program. We are so grateful!
Thank you for your support!
