Matt Talbot Launches Annual Bottled Water, Sunscreen Drive For Community Homeless

LINCOLN (SNR/MTKO) - Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach (MTKO), Lincoln’s largest provider of free nutritious meals and outreach services to the working poor and homeless, is requesting assistance with its annual summer outreach to the community.

From now until the end of summer, MTKO is collecting bottled water, sunscreen, and insect repellant to be given to their clients, many of whom have limited access to shelter, water, and protection from the sun and elements.

Items can be brought to the new Community Kitchen and Outreach Center, 2121 N. 27th St., Lincoln, during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, with the exception of Thursday from 1-5 p.m. when the organization is closed for street outreach.

The community is also asked to assist by spreading word of the need at MTKO. Water will be provided to each guest at lunch and dinner each day. Every effort will be made to recycle the water bottles to enhance Matt Talbot’s current recycling efforts.

Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach provides more than 100,000 nutritious meals anually and a comprehensive array of outreach and prevention services that include transitional housing, life skills training, health outreach and nutrition counseling, as well as assistance with basic and emergency needs.

New programs this summer involve outreach to area youth through the Summer Food Program and the Friday Afternoon Garden Club.
