The heart of Outside the Bowl is to see those that are physically and spiritually hungry fed. Outside the Bowl's Super Kitchens produce thousands of hot, healthy meals that are tools for ministry. Sharing a meal is sharing love. As people experience tangible love, their hearts are open to hearing about the love of God. In that, we are feeding the hungry ... body and soul!

Do you remember special guests showing up to your classroom with a guitar and songs that were so much fun to sing? Outside the Bowl is creating memories for our ministry partners throughout Paarl, South Africa. Ricky is one of Outside the Bowl's delivery drivers. He has experience in restaurant management, is a trained barrista, and has a heart to serve the Lord. His heart has taken him on mission trips within South Africa and keeps him involved with the youth in his community.

Working with Outside the Bowl combines the many things Ricky is passionate about. He gets to see physical needs being taken care of by daily delivering hot meals to local creches (SA preschools) or taking VitaKidz Porridge to Early Childhood Development centers on a monthly basis. On days when his schedule allows, Ricky takes his guitar with him and spends 20 minutes singing age-appropriate praise songs. Ricky is spreading joy to 1,500 children!

Outside the Bowl loves the creativity of our international team and seeing how they are feeding the hungry ... body and soul!

Touring a Super Kitchen and tasting food cooked in kettles brings a new level of understanding Outside the Bowl. We often hear that the design and layout of the kitchens is so smart for producing thousands of hot, healthy meals five-days a week. Visitors are often surprised with the taste and quality of the meals being made daily.

North Coast Church's team from Fallbrook recently visited the Tijuana Super Kitchen. Taylor Osborn, NCC Fallbrook's Associate Campus Pastor & Associate High School Pastor, shares:

"Seeing Outside the Bowl in person changes everything. Here we thought the kids came to kitchen but instead we saw a big map inside the office of more than 40 different drop off locations. We were amazed to find that not only was OTB doing incredible work, but they were doing it exclusively for the glory of God recognizable by the people through their home churches. We were blessed to be a part of the family that day!"

Tea for a Reason 
December 1, 2018 at 10:00 am
The Edge, North Coast Church Vista

Outside the Bowl loves to gather people around the table. Every day thousands of people share meals that have been prepared in OTB Super Kitchens. It is an act of kindness but it is also an act of community as children, the elderly, and the vulnerable break bread together.

On December 1 we invite you to gather around the table for our annual Tea for a Reason. The morning includes an inspirational message by Marie Osborne, special music by Lierin Schmidt, Christmas shopping with a cause, opportunities to partner with Outside the Bowl, and tea around the table.

We are currently looking for 30 table hosts. These ladies are in charge of decorating their table, bringing holiday-themed tea sets, and inviting your friends to join us for this free and fun morning. Visit our website if you would like more information and email Becky if you are interested in hosting.
