Meals to Bishop Ott Women’s Shelter 2015
A huge “Thank you!” to all of you who have supported our ministry to feed the women and children of the Sweet Dreams Shelter in downtown Baton Rouge. Our church family has completed twelve years of helping to feed monthly meals to disadvantaged people in our metro area. This ministry is open to anyone, male or female, member of our church or not – all you need is a spirit for service.
On the fourth Saturday every month, 2-3 people are needed to prepare food at their homes, meet, and drive in together to serve the 6p.m. meal at the shelter, located at the St.Vincent de Paul campus between Florida and Convention Streets, a few blocks off I-10. Normally they leave about 5:15, serve, and return to Gonzales before 7:30p.m. The meal consists of main dish, side vegetable, green salad with dressing (or fruit salad), simple dessert, and ready-to-eat rolls. If someone doesn’t cook, she is still needed to drive the food into the shelter, and help with non-cooked items.
