For those who are homeless, or who live on limited or fixed incomes, too often regular hot meals are a luxury beyond their reach. When those who are homeless have money to pay for food, they often only have enough for cheap and unhealthy options. When they do not have money for food at all, they depend on scant handouts, or food that has been discarded by others. This can lead to malnutrition and worsen health problems they are already unable to have treated.
Peter & Paul Community Services provides meals 20 days each month for those in the neighborhood who cannot afford to eat on a regular basis. Volunteers from area churches and service organizations prepare and serve food. At the meals program, we provide:
- Up to 200 men, women, and children served each evening
- 36,000 meals served at this location annually
