We welcome everyone who comes to our doors for a warm meal.We never ask questions of eligibility, religious affiliation or residency.  We want to provide a refuge for those who have no place to go … who are hungry and looking for someone with whom to talk.  We try to stress the importance of the person and the need for human dignity.
