Over the last several years the Trading Post Outreach Center has seen a rise in the number of families, especially seniors and working families needing help with food, clothing, housing and other basic needs.

The center consistently serves over 5,000 hot meals per year and log in more than 1,000 volunteer hours to accomplish this work. In our rural area, many seniors and those who are disabled struggle on fixed incomes and many families are living on low wage salaries.

The Trading Post offers a free hot meal to the public every Tuesday at 5 p.m. and Wednesday at noon and is open to the public.

Our Mission is to display God’s love to the greater community by meeting the everyday needs and developing caring relationships in an atmosphere that nurtures dignity and hope.
