Feeding Program


Shelter House provides three meals a day, and 24 hour access to food at the door.

We offer two community meals daily from 1:30 - 2:30pm and 7:00 - 8:00pm, which typically sees up 150 - 200 people visiting for a meal at each serving time.

Combined with meals for residents and food access at the door, Shelter House provides over 700 meals daily. We also distribute surplus groceries to community members during meal service. Shelter House meal service depends on the generous charity of the community through donations of perishable and non-perishable food and over 50,000 hours of volunteer time that goes into food collection, preparation and serving.

Sponsor a Meal Program

If you would like to assist us in feeding over 700 men, women, youth, and children, this program is for you! You purchase a meal, and we do all the rest. This program allows us to offer a variety of meals to our community clients, and allows individuals and businesses to get involved in our community by supporting people living in poverty.
