Dedicated to Helping Our
Neighbors in Need

Grace Cafe is a restaurant style community meal serving our communities most vulnerable residents, our neighbors currently experiencing homelessness and struggling with food insecurity. Every Sunday from 5:00 to 6:00 PM, we neighbors for dinner and fellowship in a welcoming, safe and judgment free space. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are hosting an outdoors, take-out meal serve along with an outdoor wellness clinic until further notice. 

Alongside the meal, we also partner with team of volunteer nurses to provide monthly wellness services. We have also hosted health fairs, legal clinics, HIV/Hep.C tests, and immunization clinics.

Grace Cafe has grown with each passing year, from a small program of Arch Street UMC 15 years ago to the catalyst that ignited the partnership between The Center Philadelphia and Arch Street UMC. As our program has grown and so has our need for partners to share the journey with our community. If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up in the Events section of our website. We have limited space for small groups of around 10 people to volunteer, please contact to schedule a group.

We are also looking for meal sponsors! If your church or organization is interested in providing the meal one Sunday, please email for more information.
