Assembled Ready-to-Go Meals

Because we rely on volunteers to supply our homeless neighbors with hot meals, there are times when no hot meal is available. We use these ready-to-go meal packs as backup meals so that Courtyard residents don't go hungry. We go through about 400 lunch packs and 200 breakfast packs weekly. Even if you're not able to donate a week's supply, any amount helps!

If you have minors in your group, you are welcome to assemble meal packs off-site, then drop them off for donation at the Courtyard. Contact us to coordinate an off-site volunteer opportunity.

Lunch Packs

  • 1 Cup of Noodle
  • 2 protein bars
  • 1 bag of chips or other snacks
  • 1 fruit cup
  • 1 fork
  • 1 napkin

Breakfast Packs

  • 1 instant oatmeal packet
  • 2 protein bars
