Our ministry partner, The Lamb Center, serves breakfast and lunch daily to the poor and homeless in our community. The caring staff and volunteers come alongside guests as they seek restoration, shelter, employment, and progression back on their feet.

Monthly, CPC provides meals for the guests at Lamb Center.  Although pastas and breads are inexpensive, they are not good nutritional options. Because many of the guests struggle with diabetes or weight-control issues, we want to provide better options. We serve a hearty pot roast meal that includes vegetables, and beef. The recipe is simple. Would you be able to join us?

In addition to pot roasts each month, it is helpful to have the prepared roasts in our CPC freezer. When the needs increase at the Lamb Center, we can then easily add to our meal delivery. To help fill our freezer, feel free to add a cooked roast any time!
