An integral part of these programs is the daily meal each child is served upon arriving at the center. For many children, the food served at Peace Neighborhood Center is their primary meal for the evening. Each year, Peace Neighborhood Center serves over 14,000 meals. Meal preparation is needed every afternoon Monday through Thursday during the school year.
