Homeless Outreach Working Group
Needs Your Help

Every Saturday at 5:00pm, the homeless outreach working group delivers and serves cooked meals to hundreds of locals without a home.

They are asking for your help. Please donate any of the following items to any Wednesday General Assembly:

  • Requested bulk food items: meat, potatoes, vegetables, bread, tomato sauce, spaghetti noodles, chicken and beef broth…
  • Other requested items: toiletries (travel size), socks, clothing…

cooking 14 pounds of spaghetti

The group prepares large batches of home-cooked food each week between Wednesday and Saturday morning. Can’t donate food, but would like to donate your time? Join them in serving food every Saturday at 5:00pm at the Community Assistance Center on Record Street.

Friday Night Demonstrations

The people have spoken! Demonstrating on Friday nights in downtown Reno is an awesome way to bring attention to the issues. After taking questions and educating dozens of locals at the NDAA march last Friday evening, we are coming back for more.

Join us downtown every Friday night from 8:00PM-10:00PM. We will be meeting at City Hall and marching onward. Bring your signs, flashlights, glowsticks, flyers, and noisemakers!
