The Lord's Cafe is a free restaurant and grocery giveaway ministry of Crossroads Community. Our faith family began praying to God to open our eyes to the physical needs of the area. Hunger and food accessibility rose to the top of the immediate needs.
We prayerfully secured "The Old Blue Heron Restaurant" in February 2011. Work began on a total kitchen renovation in March. Through volunteers and donations from the faith family, The Lord's Cafe was ready to welcome our community on June 6, 2011. The Lord's Cafe has been in continuous operation ever since.
Currently, The Lord's Cafe opens Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday during the summer months; in the school year, lunch is served Tuesday and Wednesday. Grocery Giveaway Day is on Thursday each week.
On average, 900 meals are served each week of the summer; on average, 600 meals area served each week of the school year. Each Thursday, nearly 400 families receive free groceries amounting to between 7,000 and 16,00 pounds a week. All of this is done through divine provision. The Lord's Cafe is operated solely on volunteers and donations.
The Lord's Cafe is operated as any other restaurant except three differences: no one receives a bill for the meal; every customer is prayed with; all work is done as to God and not for a pay check.
God truly answers prayer when we simply ask Him to show the need and provide the resources! Will you join us in praying and supporting The Lord's Cafe?
