We asked our dinner guests to write notes of thanks to the many wonderful volunteers who prepare and serve delicious meals every Tuesday evening.

"We all survive 'cause of help from folks like you."

Tuesdays from 6:00 to 6:45pm

Dinners are served in Monroe Covenant Church next door to the Next Step.

We began serving Tuesday night community dinners in 2007. Three volunteers served seven people at the first dinner.

This year, volunteer cooking teams will prepare and serve over 5,000 dinners.

Dinners are followed by a wide range of LIFE SKILLS CLASSES >


Fun activities for children

We provide childcare and activities for younger children during dinner and during the Life Skills Classes following dinner.
