Grace Marketplace currently relies on community organizations to provide donated meals for hundreds of people each day. The shelter received a $300,000 grant, and $77,000 will go toward kitchen renovations and supplies. Once the kitchen is up and running, the shelter has hopes to open Grace Cafe, where the homeless will be trained to cook and serve meals to the community.
