Friday Café

The Friday Café, a weekly daytime drop-in program, offers a welcoming space where homeless and housed adults can gather and get to know each other. Serving an average of 150 guests a week (or as many as 300 on winter Fridays), it offers food and coffee, rest and resources to people living on the margins—but most importantly, community. At the Friday Café, people experiencing a wide variety of life circumstances can relax, share a meal, and talk together as friends.

The Friday Café is currently operating in hybrid mode, serving home-cooked meals to go, with seating on the church lawn as weather permits. We welcome volunteer cooks and onsite servers! This is a community program, and we would love your help. Please check out the volunteer links below.

Hours and Location

The Friday Café takes place every Friday from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. at 11 Garden St. in Cambridge.
