Kindness

Recognizing that every person is created in the image of God, we provide services to sustain the human dignity of all people. As we are offering a warm meal and pantry items in a safe and comfortable environment, your smile to our clients is just as important as the food you are serving. Please speak with gentleness and give respect to each person you encounter. We hope you enjoy your time with us!
