Feeding Community on the Hilltop

Westside Free Store Ministries

PURPOSE

Westside Free Store Ministries (WFSM) needs a commercial refrigerator to effectively prepare for and store meals for its free Saturday lunches. With this addition, WFSM will also be in a position to accept food donations year round, including produce from local gardens!

Westside Free Store Ministries (WFSM) serves thousands of people in the Hilltop area each year, providing clothing, small household items, diapers, and hygiene items. On Saturdays, members of the community are served a hot lunch prepared by volunteers.

 

This summer, there are several weekends without an assigned organization to provide the meal. To address this challenge, WFSM has partnered with volunteers to help prepare the meals in advance of the weekend. Your support of this Better Together project helped clear the last hurdle: establishing proper refrigeration to keep meals cold during the hot summer months.

 

We are Better Together!

“Your gift to this Better Together project is a significant impact on our ability to continue to serve a hot meal on Saturdays as well as initiate providing snacks. We are now better equipped to engage more volunteers to cook, serve a wider variety of fresh food, and accept fresh garden produce, all of which frees up our budget to provide other necessary resources. Thank you!”
