Meal Program

Bradley Hills at Saturday Lunch Program

Our volunteers are essential ingredients in our daily meal program.

Since Bethesda Cares first opened its doors, serving hot, nutritious food has been a priority.  First, food is available to alleviate hunger and to help people survive. Second, our meal program is a means of engagement for those living on the streets; helping us build the trust we need to move toward housing.  Third, it helps the working poor make ends meet more easily.

The amazing show of support from our community–food drives, volunteerism and financial support–helps ensure that our meals are appealing and nutritious.

We are grateful for the many hands helping those who have the least in our community.

Thanks to our congregational partners: The Church in Bethesda, Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, Bethesda Presbyterian Church and Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church for their long term faithfulness in serving people experiencing homelessness and working poor in our community.
