The dining hall and chapel serve as two gathering places for the shelter, for both residents and community members. Meals are served three times a day on weekdays and twice each day on weekends. Those in our community who rely upon our meal services are welcomed, no questions asked. All of our meals are provided at no cost to clients and community members thanks to the generous donations of local individuals, businesses, and food manufacturers. Each year Valley Mission serves as many as 58,000 meals and provides emergency food boxes to approximately 150 families.
Monday through Friday:
Breakfast served at 6:45am, lunch at 12:00pm and dinner at 5:00pm
Saturday and Sunday:
Brunch served at 9:30am and dinner at 4:00pm
Local volunteers, churches, businesses, and civic organizations often assist in both the cooking and serving of meals on a regular basis. Serving or cooking a meal is a great way to begin volunteering with Valley Mission. To obtain a one-time or recurring meal service obligation, please contact our office.
In addition to shelter, food, and clothing obtained through our onsite clothes closet and thrift store voucher program, Valley Mission provides showers, laundry facilities, personal hygiene kits, supplies for infants, over the counter medications, and funds for essentials such as prescription medication.
Educational supplies are provided to both children and adults. Supplies that are required by our local school system are distributed at the beginning of the school year and throughout the year when children arrive at our facility. Valley Mission has an abundance of bookbags, notebooks, and other scholastic materials readily available for our children.
