What is it all about?

Those who are experiencing homelessness and food insecurity do now know where or when their next meal is coming. SVdP’s dining rooms around the Valley are thriving places where these individuals can come not only for a hot, nutritious meal and a smile, but to find supportive wrap-around services such as shelter, clothing, medical attention, and housing services. Volunteers create an experience many of us take for granted, an opportunity to feel welcome and part of a family. Bellies and hearts are filled across the Valley through our four dining rooms where 7,000 nourishing, hot meals accompany our hospitality every day.
