17th Annual Christmas to the Street BBQ
 
Lunch for our neighbors in need will be served starting at 11.00am.
 
Christmas to the Street began in 2004 as an outreach ministry led by the St. Mark's Youth and Kitchen Ministries. The goal was simple: provide a generous home-cooked meal of brisket and sausage with all the fixin's to our neighbors in downtown San Antonio. The response and support from the community has continued to grow each year. Our volunteer base of over 150 youth and adults spend over 24 hours preparing, cooking, serving, and working to make these meals special.

In 2010 the vision was expanded as we embraced our partnership with the Haven for Hope Center for services to the homeless community. In addition to the lunch served by our youth and volunteers at St. Mark's, teams of volunteers serve dinner at the Haven for Hope campus through partnerships with Society of St. Vincent De Paul and the San Antonio Food Bank. Altogether, Christmas to the Street 2021 will serve over 4,000 meals to our hungry neighbors.
 
BLESSING BAGS: These bags are filled with essentials for our homeless neighbors. Each year your donations helps us fill blessing bags which are put together by the St. Mark's youth and handed out with the meal on December 11. Any additional bags will be donated to Haven for Hope. Your donations can easily be purchased through our Amazon link where you decide what to give. Email Meredith Rogers with any questions.
