As a reminder, our center only pays our bills from the donations we bring in so we are greatful for everyone’s help and support.

The money for the suggested donation of the meals goes to the NCFHAAA for our food as well as the head cook and site mangers wages which is miniuim wage. The donations do not help with any of the bills or repairs to our center.

We do have fundraisers to help get money, too. We are blessed with such great people in our commitity to help support our center.

Please stop by or invite a friend or family member to eat a meal with you soon. We also have meal tickets you can purchase. They make a great gift for someone.

We are also looking for someone to shovel snow in the winter and put ice melt out for us let us know if you know of someone that could hep.
