Nourishing the body and soul

GLIDE’s Daily Free Meals Program provides three nutritious meals a day, 364 days a year, to the city’s poor, homeless and hungry. What began in 1969 as a weekly volunteer-run potluck for 50 people now serves around 2,000 meals a day. As GLIDE’s largest program, it serves as a gateway to GLIDE’s other programs and services.
