Meal Donation

At St. James Haven, we provide a nutritious meal for our guests each evening. This is made possible by generous donors within our community. If you would like to donate a meal, please use the easy to access calendar below to schedule a day that is convenient for you. We ask that meals are able feed up 16 men as we can accommodate 14 men and our guest count fluctuates daily.  This can be a joint effort with friends, church family, life groups, or co-workers. You may prepare a home cooked meal or purchase a meal from one of our amazing local restaurants. Drop off time is between 5pm and 6pm on your scheduled day. If you have any questions regarding meal prep or drop off, please email Samantha at

Our guests come to us with very little. If you would like to help provide personal care and household items, please see our suggested items below. You can also download a printable shopping list.

At this time we are not accepting any clothing donations due to storage constraints.
