Why the fork? Because Capitol Hill’s Community Lunch can provide 10,000 more meals to people who are going hungry.
Every year on Capitol Hill, more than 1,400 volunteers give their time to make hot meals for people who are homeless. The program, called Community Lunch served more than 30,000 meals last year.
A “Why the Fork” grant from United Way of King County will allow Community Lunch to hire a volunteer manager to recruit and organize the volunteers, install a new commercial refrigerator, and begin serving dinner three nights per week. Over the course of a year, this will mean 10,000 more meals for people in the neighborhood.
As someone helped by Community Lunch, Jessica observed “My daughter and I became homeless because of an abusive relationship. Here we can come and get a hot meal, and eat in a safe environment. The volunteers are great, and it’s so much more than just a sandwich and milk!”
