The need is great. So is our commitment to help.
Our mission is to restore a sense of dignity to the homeless & hungry while serving a nutritious meal. We faithfully treat all of God’s children with dignity, compassion, love, and respect.
At Trinity Cafe, we provide a meal, but what we serve means so much more.
Founded in 2001, Trinity Cafe has served more than 1.3 MILLION meals with dignity, compassion, love and respect.
Hunger does not take a holiday. Meals are served at two Tampa Bay locations weekdays at
11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and weekends for breakfast at our Nebraska location, 9 a.m. – 10 a.m.
Meals are prepared by our Executive Chef and served by an army of volunteers.
We set our tables with cloths, centerpieces, plates and silverware. We seat our guests, much like any restaurant you would visit. A volunteer host sits at each table offering conversation, encouragement and support, as a volunteer server provides a 3-course, freshly prepared meal. Simple respect and kindness given daily with the goal of restoring a sense of dignity to lives turned bleak by the streets, poverty or need.
We ask our guests for nothing in return, just enjoy their time around our table.
Together with the solidarity and commitment of our team, volunteers and treasured support of our partners and the community, Trinity Cafe strives to be a gateway to positive change in the lives of the people we serve. We seek to enlarge our guests’ capacity for self-help and reconnect them to the broader community.
Trinity Cafe is a place of kindness, compassion, and dignity… a respite to those in need.
Very simply, Trinity Cafe is defined by its daily demonstration of humanity in action.
“Humanity begins with a meal.”
