TASK Uses Foundation Support to Feed Families in NeedBy Administrator
Fourth-quarter poverty beneficiary Trenton Area Soup Kitchen gave us this report about how they will use the funds contributed by members of Foundation Beyond Belief. Foundation members donated $2,370 to TASK last quarter.
The Trenton Area Soup Kitchen (TASK) is very grateful for the support of the Foundation Beyond Belief. TASK has a three-fold mission: The first is meal service. The second is to help our patrons achieve lives of self-sufficiency, and the third is to make the greater community aware of our mission and our needs.
We serve a hot, nutritious lunch Monday through Friday and an evening meal Monday through Thursday at our Escher Street location. We also serve dinner Monday through Thursday at satellite locations in South Trenton and West Trenton. We have an open door, no-questions-asked policy and we are currently serving 3,300 meals per week.
Our Adult Education Program provides tutoring in literacy, basic math, GED preparation, and computer skills. We also provide the services of a full-time, on-site social worker. Those who come to TASK include the elderly, the addicted, the mentally ill, the physically challenged, veterans, recent immigrants, families with children, the working poor, and the newly unemployed.
The money donated from the Foundation Beyond Belief will be used to directly support our meal service, specifically to purchase food. With your generous donation, we will be able to provide healthy meals to individuals and families in need. Thank you very much.
Dennis Micai, TASK Executive Director
