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 1.2 MILLION meals with dignity, compassion, love and respect.
Hunger does not take a holiday. Meals are served at two Tampa Bay locations, 365 days a year: weekdays at 11:30 a.m. and weekends at 9 a.m.
Meals are prepared by our professional chef and served by an army of volunteers. We set our tables with cloths, china and silverware, seat our guests and restore a sense of dignity to lives turned bleak by the streets. Volunteer table hosts sit at each table offering conversation, encouragement and support.
We ask our guests for nothing in return, just enjoy.
Together with the solidarity and commitment of our staff, 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.”
