Summer is Matt Talbot’s busiest time of the year and this year has been no exception. Daily takeout meals are provided for lunch and dinner with only ten guests allowed in the facility at a time. In addition to serving two meals daily, Matt Talbot is experiencing an increase in demand for homeless prevention and outreach services as COVID-19 related unemployment, layoffs, and evictions affect more individuals and families. Services such as shower, laundry, mail distribution, housing, substance use evaluations and counseling are ongoing.
As a result of this busy season, supplies are depleted and donations of bottled water, travel sized shampoo/conditioner, bug spray and razors are needed. Donations can be brought directly to the community kitchen and outreach center at 2121 N. 27th Street. For information about holding a drive at your workplace, please contact Victoria O’Neil at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-477-4116.
