Kitchen & Feeding Program

Due to COVID-19, we are constantly adjusting to updated information. Please read the latest updates for meal groups here

Providing meals for our clients is a huge part of the services that we offer. We serve three meals a day in our dining hall. The number of diners varies with meal and day – our food service staff can give you a good number when you book a meal. Breakfasts are at 8 .m., lunch at noon and supper at 6 p.m.
 
Here are three ways you can help
Serving groups are limited to four volunteers in the kitchen, and all must wear masks and gloves.
For more information or to book a meal, contact our kitchen staff at (704) 261-3491 or email Meals@UnionShelter.org.

Providing A Meal

The Community Shelter feeds approximately 56,000 hot meals a year at our Soup Kitchen. We provide a nutritional breakfast, lunch and supper to the community’s homeless and low-income residents, acting as a stop-gap for those without the ability to otherwise acquire food on a regular basis. We have no financial criteria for eating in our dining hall, so anyone with a food hardship is welcome – no questions asked.

Our staff is ServSafe certified, and we strive to maintain a healthy environment and serve a healthy menu.

Breakfast: 8 a.m.
Lunch: Noon
Dinner: 6 p.m.

We are fortunate to have more than 130 churches, civic groups, businesses and other organizations who provide and serve our meals throughout the year, but we always need more. To book a meal or for any questions, contact our kitchen staff at (704) 261-3491 or at Meals@UnionShelter.org. Our calendar of booked and available meals is at the bottom of this page.
