Purpose of Organization
Trinity Table is the oldest, large-scale, Sunday-only soup kitchen in metro Atlanta. The kitchen is located at Trinity United Methodist Church in downtown Atlanta. Every Sunday afternoon beginning in 1981, the Trinity Table Program has served a meal to those in need. The guests come from many places and have different backgrounds. They are served a hot meal there, at Trinity UMC, and given sandwiches to take along for their evening meal. Most are homeless and are on the streets for a variety of reasons. Christ has taught us that when we serve others, we serve him indeed (Matthew 25:14).
Each year on a specific day we prepare and serve soup/hot dogs and sandwiches to approximately 400 homeless people. The guests sit eight to a table while two volunteers serve bowls of soup, baskets of bread, butter, crackers, and refreshing beverages. Guests are given the opportunity to offer a blessing themselves or receive one from the volunteers.
