While the pandemic has been hard, it’s brought about new ways to serve the working poor and the homeless. Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach has seen a growth in housing that is helping them defeat homelessness.

The growth in housing has proven to be a very positive outcome of the pandemic. There has been a massive increase in assistance and resources which has allowed Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach to serve 50% more people in the last year. Around 320 individuals, including families, were housed during the pandemic.

As the pandemic restrictions change, and more vaccines become available, they are able to open even further to serve a larger part of the community. As the need increases, Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach is going to begin increasing the number of volunteers to better help serve the needs. They are asking for donations of bottled water, and are looking for ongoing volunteers to help with their garden and landscaping around the property.

If you’d like to help out, you can do something as simple as donate some bottled water. You could organize a drive or volunteer in a number of other ways. For more information on how to help or volunteer, contact Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach.
