SINCE 1983, THE LADLE FELLOWSHIP HAS SERVED SAN DIEGO'S HOMELESS COMMUNITY WITH HOT MEALS & CLOTHING.
However, for many people on the streets, the lack of hope is an even greater risk factor than lack of proper food, shelter, and clothing. By sharing God's gospel of grace, and living God's law of love, the Ladle Fellowship gives help and hope to those on the edge of society in our city.
Notice: In response to the Covid-19 pandemic we are currently not serving food or hosting any events in the church building. The Sunday and Wednesday meals are now boxed and served outside on Date Street. We include a short devotional with each meal that is written by one of the staff or a volunteer. Guests line up for the meal while maintaining proper social distancing of six feet. We frequently hand out extras such as hygiene kits, masks, socks, etc. along with the meal. On Sundays we are serving about 150 meals and on Wednesday about 100. In addition, our Street Corner Care team has been partnering with the Safe Parking Program to provide medical care for those living in their vehicles.
The Presbyterian Foundation has prepared a short video on Ladle's response to the COVID-19 pandemic that can be viewed at Ladle Video. You can find additional information on Ladle's facebook page and on instagram .

Learn about poverty & homelessness. Find out what the needs are and what the problems are. Think about what life is like without a home and many of the basic resources we take for granted. One place to start is by reading some stories about our Ladle guests at Stories. There are also many Bible references relating to the poor and the homeless, for example, Luke 6:20,21, Matthew 25:31–46, Isaiah 58:10,11, Deuteronomy 15:11, 1John 3:17.
