How we help cure hunger

Meals with Love
From sit-down programs that provide nutritious, hot meals and valuable human interaction, to mobile meals that deliver much-needed sustenance to those who cannot reach a food distribution center, to feeding programs across our hundreds of shelters and residential facilities, we help ensure that the most vulnerable members of society do not go hungry.

Our program is available Monday through Friday for free breakfast from 8:00-9:00 and free lunch from 12:00-1:00.  It is open and available to anyone who would like to attend.

Food Pantry
By offering access to free fresh produce and canned goods, we provide valuable meal supplementation while helping those in need maintain their independence and dignity. These programs are especially crucial in "food deserts," where entire communities lack access to a grocery store.

The Food Pantry Program here in Cedar Rapids is available Monday thru Friday.  We prefer participants have set appointment to guarantee they will see the caseworker.  Our office hours are 9:00-12:00 and 1:00-4:30.  

Mobile Feeding
Going out every Saturday to feed the homeless and hungry our Emergency Disaster Team feeds many people through the ministry of our Mobile Feeding Unit Canteen.
