A Hot Noon-time Meal---

Did you know?  

30 Million Americans are affected by hunger 

One in five children go hungry part of every month  

Hunger effects:

o   how people perform at work

o   how children perform in school

o   how people view their communities and their lives

More than enough food is wasted each year than is needed to feed all of our nation's hungry

At the RAM kitchen, we welcome nearly 100 people for lunch each day.  We serve elderly and children, men and women, veterans and disabled persons, homeless and at-risk alike.

In 2017, we served 34,724 hot lunches, seven days a week and all holidays.

For those without home or perhaps with a home but living at or below the poverty level, a hot meal can mean the difference between getting the nutrients needed to survive and suffering the effects of malnutrition. 

We’re very fortunate to receive food donations from Kroger, Panera Bread, Longhorn Steak House, Carrabba's and Food Lion

Our food pantry is stocked with canned good donated to us by individuals and groups. 

Fun Facts— 

It takes about 50 cans of vegetables to make one side dish for lunch.  Normally our lunches consist of a meat, two vegetables, salad, dessert, iced tea or Kool-aid or soup, sandwich, vegetables and fruit for dessert.
