Dining Services

Dining Services

Families in Transition dining services support individuals and families at our emergency shelters and women’s recovery housing programs. Our culinary staff prepares healthy meals each day in our fully licensed kitchen.

Proper nutrition is an important aspect of everyone’s life. Food plays a central role in our overall health and well-being and our ability to function. A well-balanced diet provides the essential vitamins and nutrients we need to thrive in our daily lives.

The Kitchen

All meals for programs and participants are prepared in the kitchen at the Families in Transition Adult Emergency Shelter. The kitchen is run by our Head Chef, who prepares healthy and nutritious meals to be served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Participant Meals

In 2022, 191,641 meals were served to participants at our Adult Emergency Shelter, Family Emergency Shelter, and Recovery Housing. Our Dining Services Manager coordinates daily meals to be nutritious and filling. We use fresh ingredients like produce donated to our Food Pantry or other goods donated from community partners.
