Company Overview: 

THE GOSPEL BOOTH founded in 2019 is a unique non-profit, organization that  aims to provide dignified feeding services and resources to support  individuals experiencing food insecurity and/or homelessness in Dallas, Texas.  According to Dallas’ annual state of homeless address, as of January 2019, the homeless population has risen for the second year in a row, with officials reporting an increase of 9% over the past year alone. The total  homeless population counted in 19 cities in the counties was 4,538, up from  4,140 in 2018.  With an ever increasing demand on human and social services in Dallas and  surrounding  counties, feeding the homeless population is paramount. While  current meal offerings fall into the typical meal-truck, food banks, and/or  homeless shelter continuum, compassionate dignified meal service settings  are virtually non -existent.  THE GOSPEL BOOTH has a primary focus to combat the cafeteria-style,  soup-kitchen, bread-line, methods of typical feeding programs, by serving  professionally prepared, well-balanced, thoughtfully presented FREE meals in a dignified restaurant setting to those experiencing food insecurity.  Our goal is not to only feed the body but to “feed” the whole person – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. We seek partnerships focused  on providing physiological care and support, helping fund families’ essential needs, ensuring legal support and protection and ensuring educational access and opportunities.
