We Could Use Your Help in Serving the Community

            Barnabas Table served the first meal to the public on January 6, 2014.  The first few meals served a smaller group, but quickly expanded to as many as 63 individuals sharing the tables here.  The average group size being served is 40 people.  They find not only a solid meal that meets their needs on the evenings when the Agnes Table isn't serving, but they also find friendship, conversation with the meal coordinators, and even game time or music jams after the dinner hour.

              Serving times for the Barnabas Table are from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm on Monday, Wednesday, and  Friday evenings.  The average cost for providing the meal is $50, which covers $30 for food costs and $20 for building costs for electric/gas heat, water usage, and recycling.

              There are myriad reasons for members of our community to need help with meals. Homelessness is quite often an invisible condition that many in our city are not aware is the widespread problem we find in existence.  For others that are not homeless, these meals can be the difference between eating versus obtaining fuel to make it to their jobs, or even being able to fill a needed prescription.  Our desire is to not only fill the need for food, but also to relieve the sense of isolation that many in our community suffer.  These services are needed and the ministry has been recognized by the Chippewa Falls Dept. of Corrections & Probation for going above and beyond in helping individuals regain a sense of value and self worth.

              The ministry has a wish list and is looking for members in the business community to aid in the continuing service being provided by Barnabas Table.  If you are able to assist in any of these needs we would be greatly appreciative.  All donations are tax exempt and verification of the donations are available upon request.
