NVCS' culinary-trained chef and volunteers from the community prepare, cook and package hot, home-cooked meals for our Outreach Team to deliver. Approximately 5,000 meals a month are delivered to families experiencing homelessness living in local motels and those living on the streets in the North East Valley.

Church groups, businesses and clubs are a key part of our meal outreach - they prepare and cook meals and brown bag lunches once a week or once a month. Get in touch to get involved!
