In more ways than one, a church plant in Boulder, Colo., feeds people who have no homes.
Creekside Christian Reformed Church partners with Friends Encouraging Eating Daily (FEED) to ensure that those living on the streets of Boulder get fed both physically and spiritually.
The church provides food for the program once every month. Volunteers organize a simple meal and serve it to nearly 100 people in downtown Boulder.
“It’s not just about physical food,” said Chris Mitchell, director of FEED. “The most important thing we do is provide spiritual food. That’s why we get together and fellowship like that and love each other, because that’s what Jesus did [and] that’s what I try to do.”
“That’s my favorite part about it,” said Katie Clement, a volunteer from Creekside. “You get to know people, and you find out their stories and you know what the issues are. Then we can start to meet some of those needs.”
Following the meal Creekside offers a simple worship service for everyone involved.
