The Lord's Diner

"To recognize Christ, to love one another, to share life, in the breaking of the bread."

Thanks to more than 175 local companies who donated labor and materials for the construction of the original building and countless donors who provided generous financial support to get the project going, the nightly meal service at The Lord’s Diner takes place in a debt-free facility.

The Lord’s Diner serves dinner nightly from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., 7 days a week, 365 days a year, including holidays. A small paid staff, assisted by more than 5,500 volunteers representing many faiths and denominations prepare and serve a hot, nutritious meal in a spirit of compassion, respect and loving service. The Lord’s Diner is currently serving an average of 425 meals nightly at the downtown location, and 150 meals nightly at the south Hillside location - 30 percent of which are families.
