How it Works

Luke House serves free meals nine times a week (468 times a year) to thousands of our community’s poorest residents. Volunteers from Madison-area churches provide, prepare, and serve each of the meals. The volunteers also sit down and eat with the guests — this provides a sense of community and fellowship, and it’s one of the things that makes Luke House special.

There are many ways you can help serve the poor through Luke House. Please consider donating money, donating food, joining a church group that serves a meal here, and praying for Luke House and the thousands of people it serves each year.

We’re still serving!

Luke House is serving brown bag meals during our regular scheduled meal times. Our building is closed but we’re still providing sandwiches, fruit, cookies and other food in lunch bags. Stop by and pick up a quick meal.

The crowd replied, “What do you want us to do?” “If you have two coats,” he replied, “give one away. If you have extra food, give it away to those who are hungry.” Luke 3:10-11
