To alleviate the burden of hunger by providing hot meals to community friends and neighbors 3 times per week, reciprocating God's love for all humankind.
HarvestTime Inner City Ministries (HTICM) is an ecumenical mission project that serves hot meals to the community three days per week (M, W, & F) from 12:00 noon until 2:00 p.m. The mission project has been in operation for over 20 years.
The project serves 100 - 300 meals per week. Each meal includes a meat, 2 vegetables or 1 vegetable and starch, bread (usually), dessert and drink. The number varies depending on the weather, time of the month (with respect to the food stamp distribution/mailing and/or monthly fixed income), and school closings. Considering the need to ensure menu items are at the project, to ensure volunteers report to the project so it is open for serving meals, and in attending to maintenance matters, operation of the project and preparation for the serving days is ongoing.
