The Sandwich Project
Hunger Ministries at Lord of Life is excited to share with you an opportunity to help those in need. The Sandwich Project's mission is to feed homeless and those in need in our community EVERY day of the year.
Each year, various organizations put together programs for Thanksgiving and Christmas to help feed, clothe and take care of those less fortunate. There is a remarkable amount of time, energy and money that goes into these programs. An honest question, pondered by those who participate is; what happens the other days of the year?
The Sandwich Project was established with the other days in mind. The starting goal was to help feed 150 homeless people in Minneapolis every day of the year. Today, this ministry is helping to feed about 4,500 people per week through various shelters and food shelves.
How can you help? It is easier than you might think. Six people can prepare 150 sandwiches in about 30 minutes. The total cost would be no more than $80-$90 total.
