Lunch by George.

Seeing. Caring. Feeding.

Five days a week. 50 weeks a year.


Our patrons come from a variety of backgrounds and abilities. Through their time of coming to Lunch by George, they have formed a community that knows and cares for each other.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Winston Churchill

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.

John Bunyan



Some have a mental disability. Some have a physical disability.
They are old and they are young.
Some have a job and some are unemployed.
Whomever they are, they are welcome at our table.


Financial support from individuals, businesses and organizations allows us to keep Lunch by George going!


Our volunteers show up 5 days a week, opening at 9:00 AM with coffee and snacks, serving soup at 10:00 AM and a hot nutritious lunch at 11:00 AM. The dishes are done and the kitchen is cleaned up by noon, leaving the hall available for other groups in the afternoon.


Supported by the people of Kingston,
