MEAL PROGRAM

Brisben is blessed by more than 75 organizations and groups that provide hundreds of volunteers who actively participate in Brisben’s Meal Program. These groups include a wide range of churches, a synagogue, other faith-based groups, businesses, civic organizations, chapters and community groups.

Large and small, these organizations plan, purchase, prepare and serve dinners, and some lunches and breakfasts, at Brisben. Because of these caring groups DINNER IS SERVED EVERY NIGHT of the year!
