Hot Meal Program

The Hot Meal Program is so much more than community dining. We provide a safe environment to feel cared for, feel deserving, and feel like a part of this neighborhood. We offer a large variety of hygiene products, warm socks, gently used clothing, and shoes. Additionally, we have partnered with Lahai Health to offer basic healthcare and Medical Teams International for dental. Through these engaging partnerships, we are able to provide weekly blood pressure checks, blood glucose checks, foot care, fall prevention clinics, and a wide array of dental services at no cost.

Free Medical Clinic

Every Wednesday, 11 am – 1 pm  
In partnership with Lahai Health

A doctor is available every week to offer preventative and primary healthcare services. Patients have access to full medical exams, resources to obtain low to no-cost prescriptions, lab tests, and referrals to medical specialists.  They also offer foot care clinics on a regular basis.

Our medical services partner Lahai Health is a clinic providing health care to underserved individuals and families in King and Snohomish Counties.
They donate their time and talents to care for our community in order to make a difference. “We want our lives to mean something. We work alongside others who share a desire to find solutions for the thousands who fall through the cracks of the system.”
