Hope can begin with a hot meal and a cup of coffee.

Each week, Refuge of Hope provides free, nutritious food to hundreds of men, women, and children at our Canton meal center.

More than combating poverty and hunger, our goal is to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of hurting individuals and families. We strive to go the extra mile by treating our lunch and dinner guests with love, compassion, and respect.

I was finally able to have peace of mind about my life.

I appreciate and thank everyone who supports Refuge of Hope and I pray other men take the help offered here. That is why I come back to volunteer in the Meal Ministry. They helped me when I was down and now I can give back to help others.”
