Every week The Local opens its doors to provide hot, healthy meals – free of charge – to members of our community. 








We believe that when we sit down together to share a meal, we do a lot more than alleviate hunger: we build community, promote good health, form friendships, and start conversations that can lead to positive change in Stratford.


Our three meals are: Monday Community Meal Dinner (Drop-in between 5:15pm and 6:30pm, including holiday Mondays); Wednesday’s Midweek Senior’s Lunch (lunch is served at 11:30am sharp and a presentation follows during dessert); and our Thursday’s Wellness Breakfast (breakfast between 8:30 and 9:30, optional light fitness program beforehand).
