Hearts for the Hungry and the Homeless
Cornville, AZ 86325
Details: A community of “neighbors uniting to serve others in need” in order to transform their physical, mental, and spiritual well being. Our primary objective is to serve food and supply basic emergency needs to the hungry and impoverished citizens of the Verde Valley, including Sedona Arizona. In the United States 1 out of 4 persons do not know where their next meal will come from. Even more serious – 1 out of 3 children don’t know if they will have a meal every day at home. You can help to make a difference and help our hungry neighbors. In September 2007, Hearts for the Hungry and the Homeless began feeding hot meals every Friday night at Riverfront Park in Cottonwood Arizona to those in need. The popularity and necessity of such a service grew fast and furious, feeding up to 120 people, soon we expanded our services to Cornville. In the spring of 2010 we were approached by St. Mary’s Food Bank (largest and oldest Food Bank in the Nation) and the Verde Food Council (VFC) to open a food bank. With their help we receive between 15 and 20 thousand pounds of food per month. This allows us to provide food boxes, nutritious hot meals, and necessities to approximately 3,000 hungry people in the Verde Valley each month.

André House - Soupline
Phoenix, AZ 85007
Details: In 1984 at the beginning of André House, a small group of people gathered to share coffee, bread, and a bowl of soup. At first the soup was prepared outside on a makeshift table behind a house on Polk House. Each evening volunteers would bring a huge pot of soup to the train tracks in downtown Phoenix and feed as many as possible. A few things have changed in the 25 plus years, yet we remember that tradition as we prepare the Soupline meal at our Hospitality center each evening. At André House we work hard at creating a welcoming and personal atmosphere in the same way we would for a family dinner. The people we serve are truly our guests, our neighbors, and our friends. We have a large main dining room that accommodates ~150 guests and a smaller dining room for families and people with special needs. We start each meal from scratch. Fresh vegetables picked up from the food bank, fresh bread donated from a bakery, and 40 pounds of frozen ground beef serves as the base for most meals. We have experienced volunteers that come in each day to season the sauce and cook the beans. Each day we serve a fresh lettuce salad and many days we have a fresh fruit salad as well. Anywhere from 20-40 volunteers come each day to chop 50 pounds of onions, slice 1200 slices of bread, wash lots of dishes, and stir two 30 gallon pots. Soupline is the service André House is best known for. We serve six days a week (Saturday through Thursday 5:30 – 6:30 pm) to all who are hungry. Approximately 550 to 650 meals are served every night.
