The Grant Avenue Street Reach Soup Kitchen (1600 Grant Street in Denver) serves over 800 people a hot meal every Monday and we need your help. We have been doing this for 21 years and are a nondenominational, 100% volunteer-run program.
We are very shorthanded - especially the last Monday of the month so please…
Come for an hour, a few hours, or the whole day. Come after work, or at lunch, come every week, or twice a year. We especially need help at the end of the day. If you can stay until “the bitter end” we truly appreciate it because this is when we are really shorthanded, but anytime you can come is still helpful. You are advised not to wear your Sunday best. Just show up to help.
Please help the less fortunate and feel really good about yourself.
Peace and Love,
Kathleen Gomendi, Director
We work out of the basement of St. Paul’s Church. When you arrive, you can go to the kitchen and ask someone in an apron what needs to be done. You could also ask for Kathleen who runs the kitchen, but anyone can help. Everyone is super-nice.
You would need to get the parking pass which is kept in the kitchen—come inside to get it. There is also metered parking on Grant and limited free street parking a block or so away with a two-hour limit. You may leave to move your car anytime. Public transportation is extremely convenient! You can take the light rail to the 16th Street Mall and then take the Free Mall Shuttle to the top of 16th. The church is just two blocks up from there.
For more information please read the Frequently Asked Questions section of this site. If you ask a question that is answered there, I will not respond simply because of the amount of e-mail I receive. I am happy to answer all other questions. Note: you must contact me or Kathleen for scheduling if you are looking to bring a group of 9 or more.
