Thank you to everyone who helped provide food for our hungry neighbors! Whether you gave grocery sacks, food, time, prayer or money your gifts made serving food to hungry people possible. Without you and your generosity we would not have been able to serve 13,024 people in 2021.
Volunteers valiantly adapted to change while serving delicious food. Our volunteers adapted to pandemic protocols to serve meals safely. Their creativity made hot meals available in cold weather and cold meals available in hot weather. Our volunteers are amazing!
Central Christian Church continued to allow us to serve to-go meals. Adventure Church, Calvary Lutheran Church and Samaritan House have allowed us to serve dine in meals. Our 32nd Christmas Day meal was at Samaritan House Administration Center.
Looking ahead we dread the frigid weather forecasted. We have found nowhere inside to serve over half of our meals in Kalispell. People are forced to make the choice of being warm and hungry or braving the frigid temperatures to get a meal to go.
Evergreen's Calvary Lutheran Church is allowing us to serve dine in meals on Mondays and prayerfully several more days a month. Praying we are able to serve more dine in meals to meet the needs of our neighbors.
