We are starting a new campaign to help small business leaders and help people who don’t have enough access to food. Over a dozen groups prepare and serve free hot meals every day. This important work has continued with safety precautions and grab-n-go meals, but many of our volunteers are older and at higher risk for COVID-19.
Additionally, groups are having more difficulty accessing ingredients, so there are some nights when we need a little extra help to bring healthy food and maintain important communication with everyone struggling in this crisis.
Donations will help local restaurants stay afloat through this storm and provide meals to those who need it most.
Please support the daily volunteer meal providers and local restaurants through this campaign.
Many of our volunteers are in groups vulnerable to COVID-19 and we want to maintain their work until it is safe for them to return to their service while also helping small businesses in our community.
For over 12 years, volunteers have come together to serve daily meals. The groups who currently provide meals are:
- Feeding Reno
- The Sunday Crusaders
- Bring It Home Charities
- We Care Volunteers (with support from the Unitarian Universalists and the Verdi Posse)
- Loka Cares
- TriNet Cares
- Monday Meals Reno
- St. Anthony Greek Orthodox Church
- The Serving Point
- The Reno Initiative for Shelter and Equality (RISE)
- Sikh Sewa Society, and
- The Salvation Army has stepped up to help during COVID-19.
