At Our Place, a meal is more than just food. It is a chance to mingle with friends, a warm smile from the volunteers, a handshake or a hug. It is an opportunity to be part of a community. Our Place Society serves over 1,200 nourishing meals per day, 5 days per week. Plus, we are now open on weekends for lunch from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. And we open our dining room doors even wider to provide a family holiday meal on special occasions, such as Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter to those who would not otherwise have a home to turn to.
In between the hours that breakfast, lunch and dinner are served, Our Place offers a nutrition bar. It is here that people can find hot coffee or tea, baked goods and fruit to help sustain them throughout the day.
"I come for dinners because the food here is a lot more nutritious than I can make. I wanted to give back so I now volunteer here and have more of a community than I ever did before." -Gerard
