Salvation Army Mobile Canteen

Feed the hungry.  Jesus commands you (Matthew 25:31-46).

The second Wednesday of every month from 5:15 until 7:00pm, is an occasion for you to "work out your own salvation" (Philippians 2:12) in obedience to Jesus Christ.

The Salvation Army's Mobile Canteen (a complete kitchen on wheels) travels to various stops in Huntsville to provide meals for the needy and homeless.  The Canteen operates every day, rain or shine, and Harvest Pointe has the responsibility for its operation on the second Wednesday of the month.  Harvest Pointe is also an "on call" church when there is an unscheduled need to operate the canteen.

Three or four volunteers are required, one of whom is registered as a Salvation Army driver.  Personnel meet at the Community Kitchen/Emergency Shelter located at 305 Seminole Drive in Huntsville at 5:15pm, and proceed to three designated locations to serve free meals to neighbors in need.  Typically 50 to 75 meals are served, and the mission is completed by about 7pm.

This is a very rewarding experience, for adults and older youth.  To volunteer for a particular date, or as a stand-by volume, or for more information about this program, contact Jack Lawrence or Pete Davidoski.
