Hey YAL! It's that time again to come out, load up the Mel's Diner Food Truck, and give back our time and talents to those less fortunate than ourselves!
Since 2001, Mel's Diner, a St. Matthew Ministry, has been feeding people in dire need in Charlotte by organizing fresh food and home-cooked meals.
HOW WE HELP: Once a month we team up with Mel's Diner and help load up the food truck, go out into the community, and distribute hot meals and care packages to those most in need.
As unfortunate as it is, most of those we help serve through Mel's Diner are children who otherwise won't have consistent access to a warm, nutritious meal on weekends during the winter months.
HOW IT WORKS: We will meet in the St. Matt's parking lot across from the daily chapel (by the Mel's Diner food truck) at 8:30 am. We leave the church around 8:45 am and follow the truck to the founder of Mel's Diner's house, where we organize food and pack the truck. From the house we carpool to east Charlotte where we set up a production lines and assemble and distribute meals.
We try to grab lunch afterwards, so if you can spare the time, stick around and get to know other members of YAL better!
The team at Mel's LOVES when we come out, so please consider coming out and giving your time, as this is a great way to start your Saturday and an even better way to give back to the community and help those most in need!
