Description of Organization and Service Provided
Since 1983, the Free Lunch Program (FLP) has been providing "an open door, full plate, no questions asked."  Over 900 volunteers on 36 different serving teams from the Iowa City/Coralville area, and from communities as far as 60 miles away, take turns providing the noon meal 6 days a week. (Additional volunteers are sometimes needed; contact the FLP volunteer coordinator for information on volunteer opportunities.) Volunteers use their own food, donated food obtained via Table to Table Food Distribution Network, and/or low-cost food purchased by the FLP from the HACAP Food Reservoir. Respecting the dignity of our guests has been the cornerstone of the FLP’s service. This guiding principle of unconditional respect and hospitality is as much a part of the program as the hearty, nourishing meals.
