Our Dining Room

Friday, Saturday, Monday, Tuesday 12:30PM Meal
Sunday 2:00PM Meal

Our Dining Room alleviates hunger by serving hot, nourishing meals to low income families as well as single and homeless individuals. We welcome guests Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. In 2016, we increased our Dining Room schedule from 4 to 5 days a week with the addition of a Tuesday meal. In 2018 we served 22,286 meals to our hungry guests. We open our doors by 9am and invite people to sit, relax, read, enjoy coffee and socialize while they wait for the meal. One of the most exceptional characteristics of our dining room is that it is managed almost exclusively by a dedicated volunteer corps.

Last year more than 1,800 individuals gave of their time to ensure that the dining room was an enjoyable experience for our guests. Our volunteers serve the meal as though they were serving guests in their home. Since so many of our guests return on a regular basis, we make it a priority to learn each of their stories and address their individual needs. It is through the relationships that are formed in the dining room that guests are referred to our other programs.

To address the high number of lower extremity amputations in the Germantown community we have partnered with Dr. Ron Renzi, a podiatrist with Jefferson Health Systems.
