MICAH House (www.themicahhouse.org) serves over 30,000 meals to clients each year, with each meal serving between 50-100 people. In addition to receiving generous donations from places like Hy-Vee or Tyson Meats, much of the food prepared at MICAH House is donated by community members. The holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year for homeless shelters and food banks, so it’s time to get MICAH House prepared for the coming months.

This fall, consider hosting a canned food drive or becoming a volunteer with MICAH. The two full-time MICAH House chefs would love helping hands in the kitchen, especially during the holiday season. Volunteer groups are even allowed to bring in their own food to cook meals with. Serving shifts will fill up fast, so be sure to sign up early. To learn more about how you can serve people at MICAH House with food, contact Jenny Andersen at jandersen@themicahhouse.org.

Founded in 1986, MICAH House is a transitional homeless shelter that serves families and women in the Omaha-Metro area and Southwest Iowa.
