In addition to shelter, one of the other basic services Raphael House offers is food - providing three fresh home-cooked meals per day and over 25,000 meals each year. Breakfast and dinner are served in the dining room, and bag lunch food is provided for the noon meal. (A nutritious snack is prepared every school day throughout the year for the children who participate in the Raphael House after School Program.) The dining experience - including food for holidays and special events - is integral to the experience of community and thereby helps to provide a foundation for the success of all the Raphael House programs. While receiving excellent nourishment, families discover - sometimes for the first time - the value of sitting down at a table and sharing a meal together.

(Breakfast Shift 5:30-11:30PM, Dinner Shift 12:00-8:00PM)
