Upcoming dinners will be held: Dec. 31, Jan. 28, Feb. 25, March 25, April 29 and May 27.

The dinners are sponsored by the Alameda CARES Team, Alameda All Faiths Coalition, Alameda Food Bank, Building Futures, City of Alameda, Immanuel Lutheran Church, Operation Dignity and community volunteers.

Laundry service for the homeless: A Building Futures outreach worker will be at Laundry Time Laundromat, 650 Central Ave. in Alameda every Thursday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to wash clothes.

Bring one load of laundry, and Building Futures provides the rest. Limit is one load per person. The last load goes into the washer at 12:15 p.m.

The washers are small, so this service is for clothing, not sleeping bags, blankets or other bulky items.

To receive the service, please register with Building Futures Homeless Outreach at (510) 686-2332.
