We provide two meal services called Nest Table every week, one in South Snohomish County and the other in Pierce County.It is a first-come, first-served service. A good meal is not only nutritional to the physical body, but it also consoles the mind and spirit. It provides comfort to the sad and hurt. To those who are prejudiced, it gives confidence; to those who have been abandoned, it shows love; to those who are guilty, forgiveness; and for those who are ill, it heals them. Lonely people experience friendliness, family, and a sense of belonging. Because everyone receives God’s care and compassion through the meal, it is a meal of healing. Also, it is a communion with Jesus.
North Nest Table
We started the Nest Table, a meal service program, in March of 2009 and have been doing it for 15 years. We partnered with Maplewood Presbyterian church in Edmonds to feed the homeless every Friday night. However, since the pandemic has broken out, we have changed our service location to Lynnwood Hygiene Center, the Free Showers, at 19726 64th Ave. W., Lynnwood. We provide meals and emergency services every Friday during lunch hours (12:00-2:00 pm).
Since January 2024, we have been working on our new service center along with Advocates Recovery Services at 16404 Hwy 99, Lynnwood. We will provide our services as soon as we finish our remodeling work.
Every first Thursday for South Nest Table and first Friday for North Nest Table of each month, we prepare a birthday cake and celebrate the homeless people born in that month.
At the Health desk, a registered nurse provides a basic checkup and advises on health. However, we have held it since the pandemic.
SERVICE DESK(Provision of Daily Necessities)
During the meal service, we provided some necessities to people experiencing homelessness for their hygiene and survival: toothbrush and paste, soap, shampoo, razor, socks, underwear, emergency bus tickets, or Orca cards. We also provide gloves, a hat, a rain poncho, a blanket, thermal underwear, a hand warmer, and a sleeping bag during the winter. If you want to donate, please get in touch with us at any time.
HAIR CUT SERVICE
We provide a Haircut service at the Nest Tables when volunteers are available. We have held it since the pandemic.
