"Meatloaf and Hope" at Columbine Park

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- A local Grand Junction man wanted to give back to those in need and hosted "Meatloaf and Hope" at Columbine Park.

A man who goes by "Hershel the Hobo" and his friends serve those in need every Sunday.

He began the weekly lunch because he wanted people in the community to feel a sense of hope.

Around 70 people show up to the event each week from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., and the location of the meal varies.

All of the meals are funded by Hershel and his team, and sometimes they even get donations from local stores, like Safeway.

"And then seeing that I went out and saw some of these guys out doing it, and I knew it was something I wanted to do too because I felt invisible at the time," says Meatloaf and Hope Hershel. "And I wanted to make sure that these guys know they're not invisible. And dressing like I do, there's no way we're invisible."

The Sunday meals have been going on for over two years.
