The center provides free meals to all citizens who need food assistance. Adding a twist to a typical soup kitchen, our community cafeteria is restaurant-style with the feel of a modern café where community members can come sit down, enjoy meals, and socialize. The café has a waiting area, and different types of seating options to suit all patrons, from tables for two to family size tables, to high-top island tables with stool seating. The kitchen will be utilized to prepare hot and cold meals from 8:00 a.m. to ~3:00 p.m. three or five days a week (TBA). Both hot and cold meals include healthy options.
Members of the community who are in dire financial situations can receive food vouchers that they may use at the café for meals served for breakfast, lunch, and an early dinner, served at regular times each day. Those who are not provided with vouchers may still convene at the café and enjoy a meal for a low cost. The funds raised and donated through the purchase of these meals are used toward purchasing groceries and the ingredients to sustain the kitchen to continue to provide meals.
Apart from the regularly provided meals, snacks and light refreshments are available to those passing by or visiting the community center for other means. Twice a month, the café will serve free meals to all members of the community who are interested.
Our café is operated by a professional kitchen staff. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all of the volunteers, donors, and partners who have contributed to making the community kitchen possible. A special thank you to Chili's Grill & Bar for their generous donation of kitchen equipment.
