the Conrad Center

Once a month, City Church feeds the needy down at the Conrad Center, a place where about 300 people are fed five days a week.  Here's a little more information about this great local program:

Freedom House believes that everyone is entitled to the basics of life, food, shelter and clothing. At the Conrad Center, we provide all three, including the social aspect of gathering to share a meal. Our guests find a welcoming environment where they can partake in a healthy meal in a safe and secure environment that they can share in their social needs. We also provide referrals to those who may need other services and house Central Intake where guests can obtain information about other support services. Freedom House has been running Richmond's only regular soup kitchen since 1983 seven days a week and believes that Richmond benefits from this service by offering a non-threatening place where those in need can gather to receive help.
