Hope and a hot meal
Everyone is welcome in our cafeteria! And more than 2,344 people come here for meals each month, many of them regularly. Homeless men, women and families join people in our programs, as well as volunteers, urban missionaries and college students in our Leadership Program, creating an environment that is comfortable and welcoming for everyone. Prior to sitting down together to a delicious hot meal made with loving care, our guests hear an uplifting chapel service.
We believe food is a way to show God’s love. For the elderly and disabled, a good meal can be just what it takes to make life seem worth living. Children become all smiles as they get enough to eat at last. Parents are relieved. Men and women who have been homeless and addicted for years start to believe that life can be different. For everyone, the meal is a time to connect with others, build relationships and to consider how the message of hope they just heard can apply to their lives.
Many who come for our Food Chapel often later enroll in our Discipleship Programs.
Each year, people come to Christ through this outreach alone. It is truly life-changing!
