Food Service

The Good Neighbor Café, at the Downtown Tacoma Campus, offers free, healthy and well-balanced meals 365 days a year. Breakfast and dinner are provided for all low-income and homeless individuals in the community; both residents and non-residents of the Rescue Mission. The Mission also contracts with outside agencies to provide meals for clients.

The Good Neighbor Café's satellite location, at the Adams St. Family Campus, also serves nearly 5,000 meals a month. These are provided to those residing in the emergency shelter side of the family campus, as well as New Life Program or Family Life Program participants.

It takes just $500 to sponsor a dinner that feeds hundreds of people at our Downtown Campus, or Adams St. Family Campus. When you sponsor a meal, you have the option to come volunteer that evening, to see how you are helping and making a difference. This is a great way to serve with your family, friends, or company.
