Feeding the Soul of the City

Please Join Us for Feeding the Soul of the City!

Matt Talbot’s 17th annual Feeding the Soul of the City fundraiser will be held at the Scottish Rite Ballroom in Downtown Lincoln (16th & L Street) on June 8, 2023. Social hour and heavy hors d'oeuvres start at 6 pm with the program and live auction starting at 7 pm. RSVP by May 22, 2023. All money raised supports critical outreach and homeless prevention programs that assist individuals and families struggling with poverty and homelessness in Lincoln.

Two longtime community partners, Mainelli Wagner & Associates, Inc. and Brian Barrett, will be honored with Compassion in Action awards for their dedication to defeating hunger and homelessness and restoring hope among individuals and families experiencing homelessness. Mainelli Wagner & Associates, Inc. is a locally-owned engineering firm that has partnered with Matt Talbot for the past ten years by making generous financial donations as well as providing significant volunteer efforts through events such as Huskers Helping the Homeless and company-sponsored food drives. Brian Barrett has been part of our volunteer base for the past six years helping in a variety of ways including preparing meals, installing flooring, picking up donations, fundraising, cleaning the facility, and even dressing up as the Easter Bunny. 

It will be a night of inspiration. Make your reservation below!
