Our soup kitchen serves breakfast and lunch on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Our neighbors are welcomed inside when our doors open at 9:00 a.m., and can stay until after lunch is finished being served. This enables our neighbors to be in a safe, secure environment in which they can rest, relax, and eat. During the winter and/or inclement weather, it also provides a warm and dry place.
Each day we are open, we feed our neighbors a nutritious, well-balanced meal. Breakfast is usually comprised of hot coffee, along with eggs, pancakes, cereal, or oatmeal. Lunch consists of meat, vegetables, and a starch. The numbers of neighbors served per day can range from 50 to 120 per meal. All are welcome to our table, at no charge.
Open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m., our clothing barn provides gently-used clothes and footwear to our neighbors. The type of clothing ranges from casual to business attire. This enables some of our neighbors to have clothing appropriate for job interviews, family events, or other occasions.
The clothing barn also supplies used bed linens, towels, and toiletries to our neighbors.
All neighbors are welcome to shop at our clothing barn, with no questions asked, and at no charge.
Our food pantry is open on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. We also provide food for those experiencing emergency needs.
Individual neighbors are allotted one bag per month. Each family is eligible to receive two bags. Referrals from a social service agency are required, unless it is an emergency situation.
On the last Thursday of the month, we also have “Senior Day.” On this day, senior citizens are given one bag of food, regardless of whether they have a referral. This is operated in cooperation with local senior centers.
The food for our pantry is donated by local churches, companies, businesses, and individuals. While we welcome donations of food, it is important to remember that many of our neighbors do not have access to cooking facilities, making it beneficial to have food which does not need to be heated. It is also important to realize that often recipients do not have can openers.
