Munchies Man_no words_ no white outline

The Blind Munchies Coffeehouse

We are a volunteer-run, non-profit/donation-based coffeehouse near the UW-Stout campus. We serve up our signature locally roasted dark coffee, gourmet espresso and drinks, Bakery and snacks, along with live music during the school year. All proceeds are given in support of local and overseas missions.



Burning Dog Radio 101.7fm

We play a variety of indie music from all over the country and world. Yes, we do play Christian music, but not the stuff with the cheesy gaggy feel of most mainstream Christian radio. No "positive hits" or "holy alternative" here. It's the only college station in Menomonie. We play the best of the known and the unknown indie music out there.



Word on the Street Magazine

Word on the Street magazine is a relevant student magazine published twice per semester for and by Street Level Ministries at UW-Stout. WOTS, (the magazine's nickname), covers a wide range of topics such as music and movie reviews, true student bios, how to have a relationship with God in college, Stout events, and barnyard wisdom from our very own "Nick the Hick". You can interact with the magazine on our website where you'll find articles, polls, photography and maps to locations reviewed in the magazine. Pick up your free issue of WOTS at any of the racks located in most campus buildings and dig in!

A Ministry for College-age

Street Level is not a church. We are a group of people who want to know God and be used by Him in a big way. Our goal is to help students learn how to practically pursue God by teaching what He says in the bible, helping students find the right church, and equipping them to find God's purpose for their lives. We host bible studies in our Ministry House, concerts at The Blind Munchies Coffeehouse, a fall Block Party at our house, produce a quarterly magazine, and provide great programming through Burning Dog Radio 101.7fm. There are many more things we do, just check out our site. If you have questions, talk to Ben and Sasha Morrison.
