Women's and Children's Free Restaurant

Women’s and Children’s Free Restaurant began in 1988 as a typical “soup kitchen”.  Over the last 25 years, they have grown into a full-scale restuarant serving close to 40,000 nutritious meals last year.  They serve as a vital safety net to fill nutitional gaps for women and children in need while fostering dignity and respect, both within their restaurant and in the community.  This includes their on-site restaurant and "Nutrition to Go" meals to partner agencies. 

WCFR services to women & children include:
  • In- house nutritious restaurant style meals on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 3-6 pm. and Friday afternoons from 11:30-1:30 pm 
  • “Fresh Market” on Tuesdays where women choose from fresh and stable items to make healthy meals at home.
  • Provide "Nutrition to Go" meals to Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, Hope House, St Margaret's Shelter and other agencies throughout the week.
