Hot Meals & Grocery Assistance
Sam’s Community Café & Kitchen, also know as the Fort Myers Soup Kitchen is our choice model for providing emergency food to our community. This approach for long-term hunger elimination changes the mindset of those who serve and those being served, as well as the physical spaces and delivery model created for the distribution of food. We now provide people choices in emergency food in a community café setting that also provides opportunities to talk with on-site social workers who will help individuals and families address the underlying issues causing hunger.
