Kearney Give Where You Live Helps Crossroads Serve Our Neighbors!

November 9, 2023

For 40 years, Crossroads Mission Avenue has been providing homeless services throughout Central Nebraska! Crossroads brought homeless services to Kearney in February 2012, purchasing a building that is now approximately 20 years old. The current residential-style kitchen in this building has been used continuously to provide food services for over 3,300 guests, serving more than 560,000 meals in the past 11 years! The population we serve continues to grow and it is time to upgrade to a commercial kitchen in order to continue providing vital food services to Kearney residents. It’s TIME to renovate and upgrade the kitchen in our Kearney Mission!

Crossroads will provide around 75,000 meals to over 1,300 Kearney residents this year. To meet this ever-growing need, upgrading to a commercial kitchen is crucial. Commercial kitchens are designed for rigorous use and cleaning, durability, safety, sanitation, and compliance with local building codes. Expansion of the dining room will allow more residents to take advantage of our open table.

The cost for the renovation and upgrade is $373,784. THANK YOU for helping us serve our neighbors well by giving almost $36,000 to help renovate our Kearney kitchen! God bless you Kearney for your generous giving!
