*COVID-19 UPDATE: We are working hard to still provide our weekly Sunday meals while abiding by the federal and city guidelines and laws. This will involve all meals being served in to-go boxes or bags for now. If your family or group can help with a Sunday meal, please email or call (205) 296-2796 to discuss further details.

Our weekly Sunday Meal is one of the primary ways we get to know men and women on the streets of Birmingham. We’ve consistently served this meal each week for over ten years. We still serve each week regardless of holidays or weather conditions.

We are always looking for families, churches, small groups, teams, and businesses to come together and provide the meal each week. If you or your group are interested in providing the meal one Sunday, click here for more instructions and to view our calendar.

Even if you don’t provide the meal, we would love for you to join us any Sunday to hang out and learn more about Urban Purpose. We meet at The Compound at 2:30pm each Sunday. We caravan downtown together and serve at 3:00pm and are usually done by 4:00pm. Email Jim at for more information.

what to do when...

A homeless person asks me for money? My loved one is an addict? I meet someone suffering from mental illness?
