Hot Meal Program

As an organization we have decided to continue with our modifications stemming from the COVID-19 guidelines for the foreseeable future. A lot of our clients are part of the population that are most at risk and we are committed to keeping everyone involved as safe as possible. That commitment includes clients, staff and volunteers. We are grateful for the continued support we have received. We always enjoy volunteers who come to help prepare and serve the meals and will keep you up to date on any changes.
Dinner is served weeknights from 5:00—6:20 pm. We do our best to offer well-balanced nutritional meals: main dish (meal, poultry or fish), vegetarian dish, starch, choice of two vegetables, garden and fruit salads, assorted sides, desserts and beverages. Anyone who is in need of a prepared meal or companionship is welcome.

There is nothing more valuable than teaching our children, at a young age, to help others who are in need. Words cannot describe the experience and empathy that a person gets when giving back.
