Thursday night hot meals remain to go for now, but that hasn’t slowed down our cooks or our clients.
Serving dinner on Thursdays from 6 to 8 p.m.!
On Thursday nights, the pantry turns into a lively space for fellowship and food, providing hot meals to nearly 200 people (currently packaged to go, during COVID).
There’s no ID required, no proof of residency or need. Every person who drops in receives a hot, nutritious meal and a bag full of RTE (ready-to-eat) snack foods.
Our ever-changing menu is inspired by donated ingredients from local garden plots and nearby restaurants. The meals represent the cultures and nationalities that make our community so vibrant.
Creating and executing the menu every week has turned into a team effort. Chefs from The Fifty/50 Restaurant Group have helped to create our meals and it comes to life with volunteers doing prep work on Wednesdays and cooking and serving on Thursdays.
“This place doesn’t just give you a ham and cheese sandwich – there’s heart and soul in every meal here!”— Thursday dinner client
