St. John's Breadline in Springfield serves free hot and nutritious meals in a clean and positive environment daily. People broken by life's struggles come in each day to fill their bodily and spiritual hunger. In spite of their sorrows they share conversations over a warm meal. Without these accessible meals, our guests would spend too much time seeking food security instead of jobs, education, and the relationships that help weave them into our community. The St. John's Breadline serves approximately 175,000 meals annually.

  • Average cost of each meal served is $2.00.
  • Donations of food, time and money support the program.

Everyday Hours: 10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
