Love in Action Fort Lauderdale
Love in Action is Christ Church's ministry providing meals and
fellowship for those individuals experiencing homelessness
or financial disability.
Meals are served at Hope Central, 1100 N. Andrews Avenue,
Fort Lauderdale, (map)
Every Thursday afternoon a team of approximately 14 volunteers gather in the Christ Church Fort Lauderdale kitchen to prepare up to 250 hot meals of meatloaf, green beans, mashed potatoes with gravy, cookies, coffee and juice, and sandwiches. The meals are then delivered to Hope Central, where another team of volunteers serves the meals each week. Volunteers arrive at Hope Central at approximately 5:15pm on Thursday afternoons to set up, serve and clean up at the end of the meal. This is a great opportunity for families to serve together. Participating high school students are eligible to earn community service hours for volunteering. Each guest is invited to relax as they are served the home-cooked meals and given sandwiches for the next day. Servants share God's love through their actions and words as they serve, talk and listen. As needs are discovered, the ministry coordinates with agencies in Broward County to provide opportunities for shelter, bus passes, clothing and other services.
