There’s a great need for provision for the poor. Though many organizations generously offer assistance, their pantries are often stocked with sub-par food that most of us wouldn’t buy for our own tables. We’re convicted that we’re called to do better.
Jesus said God is inviting us to a banquet. The Downtown Outreach hosted by Crossroads Bible Church tries to reflect that in some small way by offering those in need hearty, healthy sandwiches, generous with fresh ingredients.
People in need are often given no choice about what they’re served, so we offer a variety: turkey hummus, turkcado, turkey Dijon, ham apple hummus, ham and pineapple, slightly spicy ham (with lentil spread), and veggie. Sandwiches are layered with spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, and mushrooms served on multi-grain bread. Hummus -- usually made in our own kitchen -- is offered as a reprieve from peanut butter, the food pantry staple for vegetarians.
As we distribute the sandwiches, Bibles, clothes, water, socks, underwear, and hygiene kits, we aim to make each exchange singular and offer genuine care. We know that God set the standard for loving one another, and it’s a privilege to reflect that to our guests.
The DO is proud to partner with Evergreen Valley Church and Urban Life Church. We are joined by members of many other churches and receive most of our financial support outside of CBC.
