Meal providers are an essential part of Operation HOPE-Vista's success. No matter how a client's day has gone, they know they can count on a tasty warm meal before bed. They also see that the community supports them. These are both things that contribute to their successful return to independence. Meal provision is an excellent bonding experience for a group of friends, a civic club, a faith group or a businuess. There is a short Shelter Cookbook available to help generate a variety of ideas for meal preparation.
