Dinner with Grace is a collaborative ministry of Grace Cathedral, Episcopal Community Services and the formerly homeless living in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco. Dinner with Grace – through the preparation and sharing of a healthy meal – builds community, engenders empathy, ends isolation and combats loneliness for individuals transitioning out of homelessness and volunteers.
The mission of Dinner with Grace is simple yet transformative: bringing diverse people together to discover their common humanity, feeding hungry bodies and souls.
We cook dinner at the cathedral and alternate serving dinner at two locations: the Mentone Hotel at 387 Ellis St and the Crosby Hotel at 516 O’Farrell St., both located in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco, within a mile of the cathedral.
We usually meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday/Wednesdays of each month with the exception of months with five Wednesdays, in which we then meet on the 3rd and 5th Tuesday/Wednesdays. Contact Nicole Stahl for more information.

Drivers & Reheaters needed! Help heat (4 pm to 5 pm) and transport (5 pm to 6 pm) meals from the cathedral on Wednesdays. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to help out.
Chefs: Cook the meals alone or with a group. We need help on Tuesdays. Please think about leading, offering to sous-chef, or splitting up the meal-making tasks with another person.
