Our meal program has been adjusted to ensure that we keep our clients staff and donors as safe as possible.
Please follow the county's COVID-19 safety guidelines while dropping off meal donations.

Our HBCAC men’s emergency shelter provides three meals per day, 365 days per year to the men we serve. Because we do not have the capacity to cook food on-site, we rely on our community to donate prepared meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  

Preparing and donating a meal for the men we serve is a wonderful community service activity for individuals, families, groups, or congregations. While staying to serve is not a requirement, we welcome the opportunity for our volunteers to serve their donated meal and engage with the men at the shelter.

All meals must be scheduled in advance using our online tool. Please provide plates, utensils and cups with each meal donation. Follow the link below to sign up today. You can also download the PDF linked below to see complete details on what to make, where to deliver your meal, and more.
