at this time we had 1 guy who doesn’t like food, and seemed very ungrateful. i’ve heard from a few of you about his comments. he’s left our shelter for a Job in Yellowstone, please continue to pray for him on his Journey. in the mean time we have 3 guys who enjoy your meals greatly, and one of our young volunteers who looks forward to your meals when he comes in to do the overnights . I was looking at the meals for this week, we have 1 meal coming in. we do have our Soup Ladies from Weyauwega who bring in soup on Mondays, I usually make it the days we don’t have a meal coming in. please continue to pray for these people as we find them permanent housing. and we pray our meal Train Team continues to provide. we are very thankful for each and every one of you everyday for joining us in this mission to feed the Guest we are giving a hand up in their time of need. PS one of our Ladies fell and broke her Femur and is in Surgery this morning. please lift her in Prayer,

2021-2022 Meal Train

Posted Oct 9, 2021 by Jill Amos-Polifka of Foundations for Living

Hello Our faithful Cooks, we are launching our Meal Train for the FFL Warming center.please feel free to share this site with your friends and neighbors as we start our second year of meal train to provide 1 hot meal a day. if you don’t cook but want to help provide a meal you can order pizza or a meal from a local restaurant. gift cards also help provide meals. we also like to have food for them to pack a lunch before they leave at 7 am. we are back to Foundations this year looking for more beds to provide more space we are housing 2 homeless with our volunteers now and have people calling or coming in daily. all the shelters are full in Wisconsin no beds anywhere. and with the hotels in waupaca full of tradesmen we don’t have that option this year. so our doors open at 7 pm and close at 7 am. so we are expecting a busy year from the start and may be taking more than 8 plus 2 volunteers if we find another place to put beds. have some in the works so prayers are needed to be able to provide. thank you again for your continued support of our 1 hot meal a day mission.

wow we have had such great meals this season. we are very grateful for all of our Meal team. I think we have had a wake up call this last week. we have had a few days of no meals. of course they are taking the freezer meals. but are also talking about how much they miss the hot meals each night! I love that they are showing how much they appreciate you guys. and realize how we can take thinks for granted when we don’t realize it. with that being said. we need to continue sharing this meal Train so we can finish our season. please continue to share away. it takes a community to come together to provide and I love mine. you’ve opened my eyes to so many blessings this year.

Posted Dec 3, 2020 by Jill Amos-Polifka of Foundations for Living

I’m excited Tonight is the first Hot meals to be brought. the calendar is starting to fill in. my heart is so full, we can do this! I shared this with our clients. One came to me and said Thank You, can’t wait to get a job, so i can also share with everyone, some of them have jobs and seem to bring things in on Payday to share. it makes them feel good. but we need them to save so we can get them on a Budget so they can get a place of there own. we work with each client and there situations to help give a hand up not a hand out. and Budgeting is a huge area we work on. Just wanted to share some of the area how we help! thank you for being part of this Journey to lift them up and show them they matter. Hope is Huge enjoy the photo it screams Hope and beauty of God to me
