Prince of Peace Mission Outpost is proving urgently needed food for those who are food insecure in these challenging times, providing hope and wholeness in Jesus’ name. Your generosity will support both the staff and needed supplies to make this ministry possible.
Mission Outpost is grateful for the opportunity to be a hub of hope and wholeness to our community during these strange and challenging times. We continue to serve families and individuals in the South Metro during Minnesota’s stay at home orders and are working to provide food and resources while keeping our staff, volunteers and guests safe and healthy.
In order to practice social distancing and serve our community safely, we have temporarily scaled down our services. We are currently providing pre-packaged food with no contact drive thru delivery. Our system is efficient and focused on minimizing contact amongst volunteers, staff and guests. In addition to food, we are providing resources, including information on other local food shelves and organizations, local companies who are currently hiring, and what to do if you think you have COVID-19 symptoms.
To further reduce the risk of spreading the virus, we are not currently accepting donations of food, clothing, or personal hygiene items. To minimize contact, we are purchasing pre-packaged food from a warehouse at a discounted price. Due to our lack of donated goods, we are relying on financial donations to keep our ministry running smoothly.
As the pandemic continues, we expect to see more and more people that have been furloughed, working on reduced pay or hours, or lost their jobs outright. The care and services provided by Mission Outpost is needed now more than ever before. Our staff and volunteers are dreaming about what a “new normal” for Mission Outpost might look like in the weeks and months ahead.
Your donation during #GiveAtHomeMN will help us serve our neighbors in need, now and into the future. Thank you for your generosity!
