{MEALS} The Gathering Place serves three meals a day: breakfast at 8:30am, lunch at 11:30am, and snack at 3:30pm. For many of our members, knowing that they are able to enjoy a nutritious and hearty meal without worrying about how to pay for it comes as a great relief. After taking a break to eat, they can focus their energy on other important matters that need attention.

Lunch is our main meal of the day and many members plan their visit around it. Beyond simply existing as a large room filled with tables and chairs, at mid-day the TGP dining room becomes the focal point of our entire building and a place to actively build community and create bonds over a shared meal.

The kitchen and dining room are overseen by Jason Medrano, Food Services Manager, and Lottie Harris, Head Cook, and given the fact that TGP serves more than 5,200 meals a month, it is no wonder that they both are very appreciative of the many volunteers who help in the kitchen.
