Do you like to cook? Homeless youth would love to be a recipient of your delicious meals. Cook at your home, by yourself or with a group, and drop it off at one of our locations. Here are the details:

You can donate a meal to Mecum House, a shelter for ages 10-17 years old, or the Sheakley Center for Youth, a shelter for ages 18-24 years old. Mecum House feeds 15 clients per meal and the Sheakley Center feeds 40 clients per meal. Lunch, dinner, and brunch slots are available on weekdays and weekends.

What an easy way to help our youth, while doing something you enjoy! Please contact Jordan for more details, dates available, and shelter information.
