A warm, nutritious meal is something most of us take for granted. But we know that for our neighbors experiencing homelessness, a simple meal is often the first step toward a new life. Our Good Neighbor Café provides over 800 meals a day to men, women and children living in poverty.

Our Downtown Campus location is open to the public twice daily:

Breakfast: 7am-8am
Dinner: 5pm-6pm
