Bringing Help and Hope through providing daily food to TRM guests and community.
“What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” James 2:14-17
24,000 Meals Per Month:
TRM Ministries Food Services is responsible for the planning, preparing and serving on average 24,000 meals per month in our dining room 7 days a week. The food served consists primarily of food donations from the community. Because of the generosity of the friends of TRM, this is accomplished for a cost of only 14 cents per meal. Anyone who is hungry is welcome to eat at TRM.

For those TRM guests who are unable to be present during meal times sack lunches are provided by written request. Sack lunches are also kept on hand to feed others who come in who have a need. Meeting this need requires making 1,200 sandwiches per week. A typical sack lunch includes 2 lunchmeat sandwiches (with cheese when available), chips, fruit or a fruit cup, a granola bar and a dessert. Supplies needed include 120 loaves of bread and approximately 300 lbs of lunch meat each week.
