2 EXTENDED TABLE DINNER LOCATIONS

 

ANYONE IN NEED CAN HAVE A GOOD MEAL

The Extended Table (soup kitchen) has been a vital part of LIFT-UP’s programs for the past 23 years. After its launch in 1995 by members of The Glenwood Mennonite Church, with support from other area churches,The Extended Table was brought under the umbrella of LIFT-UP right from the beginning to make it a community service that would not be associated with with any particular church or individual, and to provide a channel for people to donate to the outreach.

 

The First United Methodist Church in Glenwood Springs offered the use of their kitchen and fellowship hall to host Extended Table, and their generosity has continued all of these years.  In 2012, an Extended Table location was opened in Rifle.

VOLUNTEER AT THE EXTENDED TABLE

Over the years many individuals, groups of friends, business colleagues, churches and organizations have volunteered to take from 1-5 nights per month at the Extended Table, making it possible for the soup kitchen to be run at a very low annual cost. Generally, the volunteer team in charge of an evening also purchases, prepares and serves the food, and cleans up afterwards. For inquiries, please email volunteer@liftup.org and the volunteer hotline number 970.456.2804.
