Mission from Mars loves hearing from you, our community.
If you would like to get involved with meal making, serving, donation drive, or any part of our ministry, please contact us. The main thing we need are people out there who want to provide fellowship and an ear to listen to our friends in need. You will find it is a very rewarding experience! Our volunteers tell us they receive far more than they give.
Where We Serve
Northside of Pittsburgh on the street and directly ACROSS the street from the original Light of Life Rescue Mission. We are there every holiday that falls on a Sunday and during rain, sleet, or snow! (More details below)
Use GPS 10 E North Avenue, Pittsburgh, Pa. 15212
We serve near the outside of the Martin Luther King Elementary School. The address is: 50 Montgomery Place Pittsburgh, PA 15212. You can also use the address for Light of Life which is: 10 E. North Ave, Pittsburgh, Pa. 15212. The meal is across the street from Light of Life in the park.
The school is ACROSS the street from Light of Life Mission (in front of the park/playground). We are not affiliated with Light of Life, but this location was chosen as it is within walking distance of the shelter and streets where our homeless friends live.
When you arrive, park on the side of the road across from the building that has a large window with stars. You will see the homeless congregate there and arrival of volunteers starting to arrive at 11:40 am. Please keep in mind food safety/handling as if you were cooking for your own family. These people are our family and we ask you wear a mask and gloves when cooking and packaging the food. Hot food needs to come hot and cold food arrive cold and ready to be served to-go style.
