Who We Are

The Lancaster Community Meal Program is a loose network of churches and organizations that provides three free meals every day.

The meals are available, without registration or requirements, to anyone who shows up. Come to any of the providers for a tasty meal and good conversation!

All meals are still being served during the pandemic, but most are now take-away meals instead of sit-down meals.
