OUR SERVICES

Learn about the different ways we serve the Charlotte community.

VOLUNTEER

We depend on human power! Become a driver or a kitchen assistant.

DONATE

We receive no government assistance. Your donation ensures all are fed.

It costs $6.91 to prepare, package and deliver each meal.

It’s a pretty common misconception that all our recipients receive free meals. They don’t. Only 5.2% of recipients are fully subsidized. Most recipients pay between .65 to $4.50 per meal per day. In fact…

57% of our recipients pay 65¢ per meal. Your donation covers the rest of the cost.

Our Mission

To deliver nutritious meals to elderly or infirm individuals in the Charlotte community who are unable to obtain or prepare their own meals while also providing human connection to the isolated and lonely and peace of mind to their families.

Since 1976 our mission at Friendship Trays has been to deliver nutritious meals to elderly or infirm individuals in the Charlotte community who are unable to obtain or prepare their own meals. We cook and courier a meal to the doorstep of over 700 recipients. But we deliver so much more than that. We deliver human connection to those that are isolated and lonely. We deliver peace of mind to the families of our recipients. It’s so much more than a meal.
