Lunch plate program

Kitchens at La Viña Community Center

In the kitchens at La Viña Community Center, hundreds of lunches are prepared and cooked each week day.  Lunches provide critical nourishment to young and old living in impoverished areas. Meals are served at three sites, and almost 500 vulnerable children as well as disabled adults and seniors are fed.

Lunch Plate Sites ~ Montellano, El Saman & Pancho Mateo

In Montellano, the hub of our Lunch Plate program, meals are provided at lunch time.  For our most vulnerable children, breakfast is served there as well.  Hot meals are delivered by truck to two additional sites at mid-day:  El Saman and Pancho Mateo.
