Not Hungry Tonight
Not Hungry Tonight is operated by a group of volunteers who have a passion for serving humanity. Their goal is to stop hunger in our communities one person at a time.
Mission: To provide a meal to anybody who needs one, because hunger knows no socio-economic boundaries.
Commitment: To provide this service to food insecure individuals regardless of their faith, age, color, race, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, or any other criteria.
– To make a measurable impact in reducing hunger by providing nourishing meals.
– To help the recipients maintain their dignity by not requiring them to “qualify” for a meal.
– To make them feel that they are cared for.
This program is modeled after the concept of Langar; a common kitchen which serves free food to all visitors. The tradition of Langar is designed to uphold the principle of equality and expresses the ethics of sharing, community, inclusiveness and oneness of all humankind. Not Hungry Tonight primarily works with Senior Centers and after care programs to provide them with prepared lunches or dinners.
