Downtown Dinners

We serve dinner in a family-style setting in downtown San Antonio to over 250 homeless men, women, and children on Saturday evenings. We have been serving and loving on the impoverished and homeless for 8 years and have seen this ministry grow and change lives.

We believe in a merciful and gracious God who sent His son for the salvation of ALL. We believe that when Jesus said,

“whatever you did for the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me” (Matthew 25:40)

that He is commissioning all believers to take part in loving the least. While we provide a meal to fill immediate needs, we also look to make connections and build relationships with the people we serve in hopes that our love and grace may have impact in their lives.

We serve dinner every Saturday night, rain or shine! Please arrive at 6:20 for volunteer orientation and set-up. We serve dinner at 7pm and have normally wrapped up and cleaned up by 8:30pm.

We serve from 724 Chestnut Street, which is the gated parking lot of Church Under the Bridge.  In inclement weather, we serve inside the church in the fellowship hall.

We want everyone who serves with us to find a job that is suited to their own gifts and abilities. Some of these include TABLE HOSTS, FOOD SERVICE, PREP TEAM, TRASH, BIBLE STUDY LEADERS, CLOTHING DISTRIBUTION, ETC.  When you arrive, look for the leaders in the light gray Taking it to the Streets t-shirts and they can direct you. We all play a vital role in the body and we believe that ALL of these roles are important and necessary.
