In January of 2012, two of us began by bringing a single pot of homemade soup to share with hungry folks in Raleigh's Moore Square. After that humble beginning, the numbers of meals we served each week grew quickly as did the number of volunteers: Since mid 2012, we have typically served upwards of 150 meals each Sunday, and we have surpassed 200 quite a number of times. Assuming a conservative average over the years, this means our intrepid band of volunteers has served over 58,000 meals through May of 2019.
In mid-2014, we and other groups partnered with the City of Raleigh and now serve in the Oak City Cares Center, located directly across the street from where we had been serving in the park.
We are a completely secular 501(c)(3), tax deductible charitable disorganization having no outside affiliations, no message and no agenda, other than a desire to help our fellow human "beans."
Volunteers are most definitely always welcome and appreciated (click to learn how to participate)!
