Mission

At the Saturday Morning Breakfast, we serve free food, juice, and coffee at no cost to those in need. We are a 501 c 3 non-profit and are in need of funds so we can meet the clothing needs of the homeless in Colorado Springs. We gather lots of clothes and give them to homeless people at every Saturday Morning Breakfast. Please partner with us and make a difference in someone's life. We are an all-volunteer organization and a boost to our budget would allow us to buy more clothing items to distribute for free.

Notes from the nonprofit

You can get an idea of what this mobile ministry does by looking at the pictures on our website www.morethanameal.org. However, I suggest that if you can please come one Saturday morning and see this breakfast at the park for yourself.

More Than A Meal, Inc.

We are a mobile ministry that provides a hot breakfast and clothing every Saturday morning all year long at a Legacy Wesleyan Church. We are supported by churches, businesses, and individual supporters. We are also made up of different volunteers some who are there every week and some who are only able to come and help once a year. There are churches, ministries, and private donors that buy and bring the food for the Saturday morning breakfast in the park. We use the donations that we receive to purchase clothes, toiletries, gas, propane, Sterno, and provide van maintenance.

Where we work

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

We are working to continue feeding and clothing those who are homeless. We are looking to be more effective finding housing and other social services for those who are living on the street. We are working to reduce the amount of homeless in Colorado Springs, Co.

Currently, we are able to continue our Saturday morning breakfast and distribute clothing because of the support we receive. With more support we are better able to help others who are in need. With more funding we will be able to provide better transport of the food and clothing to the park. Additionally, future plans to get housing arranged is a large effort that we hope to work toward.

We have been donated a van that works, starts, and is safe to drive. We house the grills, generator, tables, chafing dishes, utensils, speakers, spices, plates and napkins, and other items to provide the breakfast. We have been successful getting the volunteers that are needed to run this mission. We have a personal van that is being use to transport the clothes and that has been working since 2013. We are blessed that we have been able to continue this work since 2010. We pray that we will be able to increase our capabilities to reduce homelessness in Colorado Springs, CO.

More reports of those living under bridges and in shelters finding jobs and homes. Seeing less people at the breakfast knowing that many have received a place to call their own.

If our organization is able to continue to provide food and clothes in the manner the we have been since 2010 then we are proceeding in a positive direction. If we are able to grow financially we will increase in our ability to provide housing solutions to the homeless.
