Tulsa City Councilors volunteered at Iron Gate Tuesday morning by serving meals to some of Tulsa's homeless and low-income residents who rely on Iron Gate for food, according to a City of Tulsa news release.
Iron Gate, located at 501 South Cincinnati, serves people who struggle with food availability and access to healthy meals.
“We are heading into the holiday season, and not every person has a home or a family to eat with or to help them make sure they have access to good, healthy food,” said District 1 City Councilor Jack Henderson. "Being here, serving these people, listening to their stories and connecting with them, it’s a reminder that we all can do more to help our fellow man. We all have five minutes to just stop and connect with another human being, to really talk to them. It is a humbling experience and an important reminder of what really matters—people—and that we can all do more, do better, for our brothers and sisters."
Iron Gate provides meals every day from 8:30 a.m. to 10:20 a.m. in its soup kitchen and also has a grocery pantry and kids' pantry available for those in need.
