Share a FREE meal. Open to all
- Wednesdays 5:30 - 6:30pm

Meals are now served To-Go only. We average about 400 meals shared every week! The line goes through the portico at the front of our building at 301 S National. In Summer when it's light out later, we sometimes use the alley behind the church. Look for the sign to mark the entrance we are using that week. 

Feeding Families sign

There is no cost or obligation, we just ask a name and how many meals you can use that day. 

Please be sure not to block our neighbors driveways while waiting. Thanks for your patience!
