FEAST OF HOPE 2023
This is a Thanksgiving Day meal when we plan to serve up to 1,200 meals to the community. We have done this for over 20 years. This year we will have take-out boxes for people who come to the church and also up to 650 meals that will be delivered to residents of homeless shelters, special needs housing programs, and home-bound senior citizens. We WILL have a clothing pantry this year. We need volunteers on Wednesday for set up and on Thanksgiving Day to deliver meals, help box meals, hand them out and help clean up, and experience the richness of a community celebration.
Takeout meals will be available at the church from
11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
Please, click the "Sign Up" button below to choose task(s) and time(s) you can help out.
We will try to honor the task you sign up for. However, if a different area is in need of more help, we may ask you to change to a different task.
Note: Given Covid and flu season, all volunteers who handle food not already in a closed container must wear masks, gloves, and hairnets.
All volunteers must be at least 12 years old unless in a car helping with delivery of meals.
There will be a variety of tasks on Thanksgiving, including:
Filling take-out boxes
Handing out boxes
Working in the clothing bank
And, of course, clean up!
If you are able, we hope you will join us in this important ministry.
If you have questions, call the church office at (505) 255-8095.
Because of the modified menu and due to supply issues, we are not requesting donations of any food or supplies. Rather, please consider supporting the Feast with a monetary donation. Donations can be sent to the church or can be made via the La Mesa Presbyterian Church website.
