We provide a healthy meal six days a week including holidays. Also, soup three times a week and bread and pastries once a week to those who are unable to cook for themselves. This also serves as a wellness check to make sure the client is not in need of any medical support or has any safety challenges in the home.
We currently serve 100-110 clients a day, the number has increased 60% over the past year. As of October, 42 of those clients were Veterans, or their spouses or widows.
The charge for a daily meal is $4.25, but over 50% receive a reduced rate since they cannot afford to pay the full price. We are a 100% volunteer organization, with no one receiving a salary. Our only means of revenue is through grants, donations and fundraisers. We do not receive any funding from the state or federal government. Our biggest issue is how to raise money to feed those in need.
Your adoption would feed a client a nutritious meal six days a week including holidays.
