Cafe Gratitude and sponsors pays for the food. Staff members are also volunteering.  they usually will pass the hat for a fundraising event..Previous years they were collecting money for a cancer patient/staff member etc.. Lunch time is 12pm to 3pm.

come early to get training I've volunteered here a few times already and it's really fun.

The people are usually from one of the following:

local Mission Distrist people

veg/regular customers

only a small amount are homeless from the street since there's so many other free meals that day.

This meal is served FREE to everyone.



For our returning family: we will be serving an all new menu this year!  

Traditional steamed butternut squash tamale with a pecan and persimmon salad and cranberry salsa (lightly spicy) and a chocolate macaroon!

Previous years' menu was:

cranberry sauce

mash "potatoes" made from cauliflower

stuffing made with walnuts

raw crackers

pumpkin pie; pumpkins are from their own farm

Hibiscus tea

Wear your bright smile and wear festival "autumn" colors.



in personal silence...

We thank for the great things that are given to us. We pray for the Indians that were treated "very poorly" now and in the"past".


Pls try not to be a "no show".  No matter how late, change your RSVP status to NO.

    I enjoyed the people—including the great people from Gratitude, the fellow volunteers, and visitors—as well as the delicious food and nice atmosphere. There were a lot of us volunteers, and everyone was anxious to help.

    this is served FREE to the public, most of the people are NOT the poor, but the poor from the street do come in. the majority of the people are customers, vegetarian people , and guests and kids...

    you can't tell if someone is poor and unemployed *shrug*
