Luke 14:12, Nashville’s oldest soup kitchen, is preparing to implement a new way to support our hungry and homeless neighbors by developing Luke 14:12’s “First Meals” and WE NEED YOUR HELP!
1st Meals is a new partnership to feed families transitioning out of a homeless shelter into a new home of their own! We are working with Safe Haven to provide 3-5 free, nutritious, pre-cooked meals, as well as snacks, for these families. These meals will make these first difficult weeks easier by reducing stress, providing meals to free up time and finances during this critical period as well as giving school children a nutritious beginning as they enter into a new school. Luke 14:12 plans to provide more than 1,500 meals during this first year of our “First Meals” program!
As folks in Nashville know, Luke 14:12’s mission is to provide free, hot, nutritious meals to the hungry, homeless and working poor of the Nashville area. Luke 14:12 is an ecumenical outreach program through which persons of diverse communities join together in a common effort to address the needs of those who are inadequately fed. With over 2,200 volunteers we show up multiple days each week to serve over 40,000 free, hot, nutritious, dinner-style meals for our hungry guests. With your help this month, we can Set The Feast for even more of our country’s neediest!
