520 East Market Street , Indianapolis, IN
NOTE: This will be repeated on the LAST Tuesday evening of every month. It starts at 4:30pm but it's good to get there early to find parking, which can be a challenge if you're late.
This is the same dinner we did the FIRST time with Wheeler (in February), NOT the one we did in March. We will be way more busy and you can plan to be there the full time. I think they typically do[masked] dinners nightly at this location.
We will be serving dinner to the Wheeler Mission Men's Shelter (note the location, as they have multiple buildings). You may be preparing or serving food, and/or chatting with the men who are visiting the shelter.
