We provide housing, shelter, and support services to people experiencing homelessness in Central Illinois.
When people give their time, their talents and their treasure to provide for those who face serious barriers, our community wins
Thank you for providing a nutritious supper for our shelter guests! You can sign-up through Meal Train. Just click on the evening you want, create a brief profile (one-time only) and sign up for an evening.
Helping Hands serves supper every night. Here’s what our meal providers need to know:
Bring enough for 50 men to enjoy.
Arrive between 5:45 and 6 p.m. through the double doors (Washington Street entrance). Food can be delivered or groups can stay and serve. Helping Hands cannot pick up meals.
Choose meals that have nutritional value. We want to serve hearty meals that include protein, grains, and vegetables/fruits. Please do not bring meals that are entirely “junk” foods (pizza or hot dogs with potato chips, etc.). If you would like help choosing a menu, we are happy to share ideas and suggestions.
