Sponsor a Meal
Sponsor a Meal
Need a gift for someone who already has everything? Looking for a way for your company to give back to the community?
Through the Sponsor a Meal project, you can choose to sponsor a day, week, or even a month of meals in the soup kitchen. You choose the date you would like to sponsor and you are invited to visit the center and help serve your meal. You will receive a certificate of appreciation and a report on the menu for your day and how many plates were served.
Many donors give sponsorships as Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, and even as wedding gifts or in their mom’s honor on Mother’s Day! Gift recipients receive a letter explaining that a donation has been made in their name. After the meal they receive their certificate of appreciation, menu, and meal count. Donors often choose the recipient’s birthday or anniversary as the date they sponsor.
Businesses looking for a community project often sponsor several meals and rally a team of volunteers to serve lunch on some of the days they sponsored.
We have chosen to not do a Sponsor a Child project, out of respect for the families we work with, who often do not wish to advertise their struggles. By sponsoring a meal, however, you are able to help many people in need: each meal serves 80-100 plates of food.
Sponsor 1 meal: $100
Sponsor 1 week: $600
Sponsor 1 month: $2,600
The sponsorship helps us cover the cost of each meal, including food, drinks, napkins, plates, silverware, and cleaning supplies.
Thank you to the businesses that have sponsored meals!
