Food and Resources

Meeting immediate needs for those who are hurting and hungry in our community

Sharing a meal provides the nourishment many so desperately need as well as the opportunity to start building relationships.

We serve breakfast Monday-Saturday, 9-10 a.m., and lunch Monday-Saturday, 12-1 p.m. All meals are free. Guests may also take produce, bread and other food items from our distribution table, as available. Guests may also meet with our Resource Coordinator during our walk-in hours, which are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 1-3 p.m. Common requests include help with clothing, hygiene products, household supplies, food bags, obtaining IDs, and transportation assistance.

Community Meals

We provide breakfast from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. and serve hot, nutritious lunches from 12 to 1 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Breakfast and lunch are free and open to anyone in need. All meals are served at our Outreach Center at 444 Glen Arvin Avenue.

In addition to the vegetables we grow in our community garden, we accept donations of fruits and vegetables to give to the public. We also give away donations of bread and pastries to our guests. For more information about our community meals, please contact Tammy Smith, Food Service Coordinator, at (859) 381-9600, ext. 225.

Get Help with Resources

Our Resource Coordinator is available to meet with anyone in need, assist people with housing issues, and connect people to community resources, including providing clothing vouchers to Goodwill, referrals to Faith Pharmacy, and setting up appointments for God’s Pantry. We also keep basic supplies on hand for guests, including hygiene products, socks, underwear, backpacks, sleeping bags, blankets, tents, and household supplies.

Guests may set up an appointment by calling (859) 381-9600.  Walk-in hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Laundry Ministry

Homeless guests who do not have access to laundry services because they are not living at a shelter are welcome to have their clothes washed and dried at our Outreach Center.  Laundry service is available Monday through Friday. Sign-ins are from 9 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at the front desk. We take the first two people who sign up each day.

Kathy’s Story

“Neighbors helping neighbors!”

Kathy is a 62-year-old grandmother who lives in our neighborhood. Thanks to your support, she is able to drop by on a regular basis to share a cup of coffee or a meal and to spend time with our other guests. And when she wanted a part-time job, you also made it possible for our staff to be there to help her.
