Bring-A-Meal (BAM)

In the news

Azteca and Aqua by El Gaucho serve meals at Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission.

Our Bring-A-Meal (BAM) program serves meals for Mission guests while providing a life-changing service opportunity for community groups.

We partner with groups of all sizes, including churches, restaurants, families, and corporations. Organize groups of 5 to 10 volunteers to bring a meal once a month. Special arrangements can be made with our BAM coordinator for groups of more than 10 volunteers. Our trained kitchen staff is available to help you plan and cook your meal.

Our guests love special meals themed for a holiday or just for fun! Put on a luau or Mexican fiesta, offer to host a good old-fashioned southern BBQ, or bring in music and dessert. Your group can design the entire dining experience for our guests.

How it works

1. Choose a BAM serving opportunity and a meal you’d like to serve to our guests. 

2. Purchase, prepare, and serve your meal from our industrial kitchens. 

3. Enjoy your delicious meal with our guests!
