Community Meals

Filled by food. Filled with hope.

For the homeless, survival is day to day, which often means searching for the next meal.


At the Mission, a nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner are offered free of charge every day for any hungry man, woman or child in the community.

The Mission serves about 400 meals a day.
