Hello! Seeking donors willing to put together lunches for our friends staying in alternate shelter during the cold spell, either a sack lunch or individually packed microwave meals.

Please email outreach@friendsofthestatestreetfamily.org for more information or to sign up.


FSSF Meal Train Cancellation

Posted Mar 13, 2020 by Beth Outreach Director

Dear Friends of the State Street Family Community, Amid the many concerns about the COVID-19 virus, the FSSF Board is discussing ways that we can help keep our friends experiencing homelessness and our volunteers safe and healthy. FSSF has decided to suspend our Meal Train program for the time being, as the handling of fresh foods could lead to possible contamination. We will be moving to distribute only non-perishable snack packs. Donors can assemble no-hunger packs or purchase non-perishable snacks in bulk and we can identify a drop off point. We also have many non-perishable items that can be shipped directly to us on our Amazon wishlist. Thank you for your continued support. We wish you all well.
