Feeding The Homeless

Throughout the year Arapaho's United Methodist Men organize early morning visits to the Austin Street Shelter to feed breakfast to the residents. Austin Street is a unique shelter, for the amount of space, more people receive regular care than at most similar facilities in the country. Each night they provide sleeping spaces for between 300-400 men, women and children. In addition to a sleeping space they provide showers and clean clothing. Volunteer's are needed to prepare food as well as travel to the shelter to serve the breakfast. 

If you would like to serve as a part of our January 28 team, please fill out the online registration form.

You may assist the team in several ways: by preparing food, serving food or doing both.

  • If you are only preparing, you may deliver your food to the church on the Saturday immediately before the service date between 2:00 and 4:00 PM.
  • If you are only serving, please arrive at 4:00 am at the AUMC parking lot. 
  • If you are serving and preparing food simply bring the food when you gather at 4:00 AM.
