Although our volunteer groups supply most of the food that lunch and dinner guests at Luke House rely upon, the other costs of maintaining The Community Meal
Program are between $60,000 and $70,000 a year. The income to meet those expenses comes entirely from private donations. The Community Meal Program operated by Luke House Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, receives no government funding. Some faith communities support The Community Meal Program out of their annual budgets or through special collections. Some organizations hold fund-raisers for The Community Meal Program.
Although not a United Way agency, the program can receive funds through the United Way annual campaign when donors write in The Community Meal Program as a designated funding recipient on their annual campaign pledge forms.
We need your support. Please consider providing some of the resources our ministry of hospitality requires. Your tax-deductible gift will help ensure that the local people in need who are our lunch and dinner guests at Luke House can continue to rely on The Community Meal Program.
