OSL created and manages Seattle's Outdoor Meal Site (OMS), providing quality control, security, and an “exploitation” free environment. Located at 6th and Columbia, OSL was instrumental in pioneering the vision and realization of a safe, permanent, and sheltered outdoor meal site, complete with bathrooms, hand-washing facilities, and benches.


The OMS is a secure, anonymous, no barrier, non-denominational and all-inclusive environment.

There are no requirements or restrictions for access to a nutritionally dense, nutritious meal.

 OSL provides vegetarian options and serves diabetic friendly, pork free, shellfish free, tree nut, peanut, and gluten free meals.
