Rescue Mission Cooking Up Easter Feast

The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission‘s annual Easter Feast will be held from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 13, in the Rescue Mission’s decorated dining hall, 535 East Yanonali St.

The Mission’s staff and a team of volunteers will serve meals restaurant-style to men, women and children. Through charitable donations of food items and gifts from the Santa Barbara community, the Rescue Mission is prepared to serve meals to 300 people in need.

Rolf Geyling, president of the Rescue Mission, said, “Because we’re the only emergency shelter open to everyone, winter and summer, we see many whose lives are shattered. They turn to us when there’s no one else.

“When they’re desperate for a wholesome meal, a safe place to stay, and the chance for recovery and rebirth in Christ Jesus,” he said.

The Santa Barbara Rescue Mission, established in 1965, is a 501(c)(3) organization that provides emergency services and long-term recovery for the homeless and addicted. In 2016, the Mission provided 143,051 meals and 51,627 safe nights of shelter for individuals with no place to turn.

The Mission receives no government funding.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
