We are a church located on the south side of Colorado Springs were there are not as many options for those in need. We have a soup kitchen operating every Thursday at 11:30 and a clothes closet free of charge. We also have a food pantry and homeless bags (includes basic toiletries). We have been asked about fresh vegetables and fruit but do not have the ability to supply that at this time. We feed about 50-60 people weekly (leftovers on Thursdays are boxed up and handed out to the homeless). We are also in need of helpers on Thursdays. You don't have to join our church to help!

Location & Open Times
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
We can accept food at non-scheduled times by appointment to make sure someone is at the church to receive it.
If not donating on Thursdays between 10:30-12 please call 719-597-9004 to schedule a drop off as we do not keep regular business hours. Also, if it's a snowy day and District 2 is delayed or closed, we also close the facility. We always take donations on Sundays during Sunday School or Worship hours (9-11:30 a.m.). We'd love to have you join us!
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
