Sponsor a Lunch

History

In 1976, members of Central United Methodist Church saw that people in their community needed food. Responding to this basic need, church members began offering a Bag Lunch to anyone who came to their door twice per week, on Mondays and Thursdays. This program, now nearly 40 years old, remains the cornerstone of the NOAH Project.

In 1999, realizing that people needed more than just a lunch, Central partnered with Family Service, Inc. and created the NOAH Project (Networking, Organizing, and Advocating for the Homeless). NOAH began offering social services and physical health counseling.

In 2003, NOAH was transferred to the Central United Methodist Church of Detroit Community Development Corporation, our 501(c) 3. In 2014, responding to the coldest and snowiest winter in Detroit’s history, NOAH opened wide its doors and created the NOAH Community Center. We extended our hours and are now open to people from 9:00am to 2:00pm Monday through Thursday. NOAH also expanded its Bag Lunch Program to serve lunch on all four days. This growth has spurred the creation of the Community Center.

Bowls of Hope

March 18, 2018, 11:30am - March 18, 2018, 12:30pm

Join us for our Annual Bowls of Hope Fundraiser, held at Central United Methodist Church. We'll have a selection of bowl painted by NOAH participants ($15) and recycled bowl ($10) for you to choose from. Then you will have the opportunity to fill those bowls with a variety of homemade and local restaurant soups & stews, with some delicious bread from Avalon Bakery. This event is a great opportunity for you to meet other supporters of NOAH as well as learn more about what services our agency offers for low-income and homeless individuals. All of your proceeds will go to help fund the various programs at NOAH Project. We hope that you will join us on March 18th at 12pm for some delicious soup!
