People who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless rarely have the means with which to purchase and prepare nutritious meals. Our community meals and food pantry programs feeds hungry families and make it easier for them to use whatever resources they have to pay for housing.
In House Meal Program
The Boston Rescue Mission serves more than 130,000 meals each year. These include breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily to our residents and breakfast and dinner daily to guests in our Safe and Healthy and Emergency Overflow Shelter programs.
The Boston Rescue Mission also serves Sunday dinner at 5pm to anyone in the community who is hungry. This weekly meal is always well-balanced, nutritious and served hot. The fellowship at these meals also provides comfort to people who need it most.
Saturday Morning Outreach
On Saturday mornings the Boston Rescue Mission organizes an outreach group typically consisting of staff, volunteers, and local church groups. They head to the Boston Common to provide meals to people who are hungry. No matter what the weather is like outside, the team brings food, coffee, water, and fellowship. The goal of Saturday Morning Outreach is to establish relationships with people who are hungry and dealing with homelessness.
