A lunch reservation must be made at least 24 hours in advance of the starting day.  Please arrive about 15 minutes early to fill out the paperwork before lunch is served.  After that, a reservation must always be received at least 24 hours in advance. If you are unable to attend a lunch you have reserved, call to cancel at least 24 hours in advance so your lunch isn’t wasted.

There is no charge for eligible participants, but we appreciate your donation in any amount you are able to afford.  Our suggested donation is $4 per meal.  You may pay by cash or by check when you attend, by sending a check by mail to our main administrative office, or by using a credit card online HERE.  If you are unable to make a contribution, it will not affect your participation in our program.
