The Hospitality Center is a clean, safe and dignified environment where a hearty, daily meal is provided for the elderly on fixed incomes, temporarily needy, working poor, disabled and homeless persons. All in need are served, regardless of age, race, gender or religion because all persons have the right to be treated with dignity and respect. This belief is the core value of the Hospitality Center, and daily we strive to serve guests with the utmost respect and dignity.
There is no charge or fee for receiving a meal at the HospitalityCenter.
The Hospitality Center is open seven days a week and all 365 days of the year. The facility is located on Gulfway Drive in Port Arthur to readily serve the populace of South Jefferson County. Approximately 40,000 meals were served last fiscal year.
