The "Easter Blessings to Go" meal distribution is open to everyone.

  • Updated

The Gospel Rescue Mission will pass out Easter brunch meals on Good Friday as part of its “Blessings to Go” food distribution program on Good Friday, April 2.

The Gospel Rescue Mission will hold a drive-through meal distribution from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 2 at the H.S. Lopez Family Foundation Center of Opportunity, 4550 S. Palo Verde Road.

The “Easter Blessing to Go” is open to everyone and will include a ready-to-heat Easter brunch meal plus a resources box with nonperishable food and hygiene products.

The nonprofit still has volunteer opportunities available for the event and it will continue to practice social distancing and exercise CDC-recommended safety measures.

The event will be livestreamed on the rescue mission’s Facebook page, from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Donations for the meal are needed, particularly donations of hams (spiral cut preferred), fresh eggs, and canned food . Donations can be dropped off at the Lopez center, 4550 S. Palo Verde Road, or at the mission’s Women’s Recovery Center, 707 W. Miracle Mile.

In 2020 the rescue mission provided 218,260 meals and 73,818 shelter bed nights.
