For nearly 40 years, the Community Kitchen at Eva’s Village has provided more than free meals to Paterson’s most vulnerable men, women and families; it is a trusted point of entry to the comprehensive supportive services we offer.
For many, a meal becomes the first step on a path to a health, self sufficiency and stability.
We serve nutritious meals to nearly 400 community members in need weekdays, and 3 meals a day to community members and residents of our halfway houses and shelters. We served more than 400,000 meals in FY 2020 to neighbors experiencing poverty, homelessness, and unemployment and to our clients.
Our Community Kitchen and supportive services never closed during COVID.
We envision a time when every one of our neighbors can access the support and opportunities they need to thrive in our community, with good health, safety, dignity and security.
Our model is unique. Our results are real. Our success is measured one life at a time.
Our mission has never been more urgent!
