CAST Food Outreach
In concert with our mission to fill gaps in human services, Interfaith Coalition partnered with CAST to help feed hungry homeless people in our community.
CAST (Coffee and Sandwiches Together) began over a decade ago as an outreach mission of Faith Lutheran Church. The program grew into serving around 60 people four nights a week in downtown Bellingham.
Today, CAST is based at St. John’s Lutheran Church, where teams of volunteers prepare the simple meals and deliver the food to their guests. Interfaith had had a long and positive relationship with CAST, sharing extra Severe Weather Shelter supplies. Volunteers for Interfaith programs also have volunteered with CAST.
Reaching out to street people with food and acceptance is part of a caring and concerned community.
