CAST Food Outreach
In concert with our mission to fill gaps in human services, Interfaith Coalition partnered with CAST to help feed people in our community who are experiencing homelessness.
CAST (Coffee and Sandwiches Together) began almost 20 years ago as an outreach mission of Faith Lutheran Church. CAST has since grown into serving over 9,000 meals each year in downtown Bellingham, and is a program of Interfaith Coalition.
Today, St. John’s Lutheran Church extends the use of its kitchen and support for CAST meal prep and food storage, and the Opportunity Council allows us usage of their site as the meal center. CAST is totally volunteer-run, with over 130 volunteers who faithfully prepare the simple meals and serve the food to their guests.
Reaching out to street people with food and acceptance is part of a caring and concerned community.
