Our Dining Room serves our guests over 100,000 healthy and delicious meals a year, and our Food Pantry supplements food budgets for 2,000 women each month.
Every day an average of 220 poor and homeless women and their children can count on having a healthy lunch and dinner in our bright and welcoming Dining Room. Another 60 women enjoy breakfast Monday through Friday and brunch on weekends.
Unlike other places, we don’t require our guests to line up and wait to receive their meals. Our volunteers and dining room staff act as waiters and waitresses to serve them at the table, just as you would a guest in your own home. For many of our diners, it well may be the only respite in their day.

An average of 2,000 women visit our Food Pantry each month and leave with 20-40 pounds of healthy food for their families. While many pantries distribute pre-bagged groceries, our guests “shop” free of charge among shelves set up like a grocery store, choosing which items they would like from juices, grains, canned goods and more. We also offer meats and dairy products. And thanks to relationships we have developed with local farms, we can also offer women a wide selection of seasonal, nutritious fresh fruits and vegetables year round.
