Glide Memorial Church

The largest of Glide’s programs, the Free Meals Program serves three nutritious meals a day to the city’s poor and homeless every day of the year. What began in 1969 as a Monday night potluck for 50 people now requires the talents of 27 staff members who come primarily from the ranks of the poor, homeless, formerly incarcerated and those with successful recovery from substances and addictions.  You can help cook and serve a meal at Glide Dining Room.  The minimum age is 12.

GLIDE’s mission is to create a radically inclusive, just and loving community mobilized to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization.
