Street Angels Milwaukee Outreach
Welcome to Street Angels Milwaukee Outreach, brown bag lunch project! This is an opportunity for YOU, our awesome community, to have an immediate impact on an individual experiencing homelessness by providing life sustaining nutrition.
We conduct street outreach for the homeless three nights per week, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. In addition to a hot meal, we like to provide our friends with a "lunch for later". Our homeless friends really seem to enjoy the brown bag lunches.
There are 2 slots for lunch sign ups. As of 10/11/2020, we are currently assisting 140 individuals per night. If you sign up for 1 slot, we ask that you make 1/2 or (70) of the bagged lunches. You can opt to sign up for both slots and make all (140) lunches. If you are not on Facebook, please feel free to call Shelly Sarasin at 414-614-2841 for a current count before your sign up.
New procedure with current COVID-19 crisis. We ask that there be no sandwiches (we will supply sandwiches) or homemade goods. Please provide pre-packaged snacks/fresh fruit. So, what should a lunch consist of?
- Soft fruit such as tangerines, bananas, plums, etc. (Fruit cups w/a spoon are good too)
- Chewy granola or protein bar
- Individual bag of chips
- Sweet treats! Examples: Little Debbie snack, cookies
- Water flavor packet for bottled water drinks
- String cheese, beef sticks, etc.
Other suggestions could be: fresh veggies w/dip, pudding, applesauce, crackers, trail mix, etc.
With the current COVID-19 crisis, we ask that bag lunches are prepared in a clean enviroment using social distance precautions. When dropping off bag lunches on the night of outreach, please drop off in bags or boxes that you will not need returned. To keep with social distance, we ask that you place the lunches by one of our buses, which our team will place on the bus.
Bag lunches must be delivered to Street Angels at 5:45pm on the day of outreach. Street Angels is located at 445 W. Oklahoma Avenue, Milwaukee, WI.
