Mission: The organization exists to serve the hungry and the homeless of fairbanks north star borough with nutritious meals. We serve a hot meal every week day and prepare take-away sack lunches. We treat our guests with respect and offer them a safe and warm place to be for several hours each day.
Programs: Over 28,000 hot meals and over 11,000 sack lunches were served to over 600 unique individuals during 2014. This was done with one employee and the help of many volunteers from the community. Food is largely donated to the stone soup cafe from the fairbanks community food bank supplemented by donations from individuals. Our expenses relate to the cost of doing business. In 2014 this included, utilities, garbage disposal, dry goods and supplies, insurance and accounting costs. Funds are raised through fundraisers and through local community support. These are leveraged, when possible, with the fnsb match assistance grants for essential human services. Serving meals was our main and only program service in 2014. Warm clothes that we distribute are donated by the community and are only a small part of what we do.
