BOTW Meal Preparation

Bridge Over Troubled Waters builds confidence and self-sufficiency for homeless youth by providing a continuum of care that includes outreach, basic services, emergency shelter, housing, counseling, education, and employment training. 

In greater Boston, hundreds of youth are homeless. Often, that means going for a long time without food - something that a developing young person who is trying to stay in school or working to get a job, cannot function without. Be a part of providing warm nutritious meals at BOTW, so youth can have the energy and heath to get off the streets to prepare for life.
