At the core of our Mission, we provide healthy and nutritious meals to those that do not have the resources to provide for themselves or their family members. The people that access the Mission are at risk due to low income, chronic illness, disability and homelessness. We offer two meals per day from Monday through Friday and support one meal on Saturday and Sunday through a mobile delivery service. We provide food to our guests at no cost, and people do not have to register to access emergency food services.
The Upper Room Mission provides support services that help our guests daily. These services include access to our food pantry, clothing, laundry, washrooms, hygiene products and help in connecting them to housing opportunities. Most guests need more than a meal to survive each day and these support services are essential in helping them survive daily.
Accessibility: The Upper Room Mission is accessible to everyone that needs our services. Our building is wheelchair-accessible, and we serve several individuals that use wheelchairs, walkers and scooters.
