Lunchtime Ministry's mission is to provide our Hoboken neighbors with a warm meal, a compassionate community, and a peaceful place to spend the morning.


St. Matthew Trinity Lutheran Church has a long tradition of feeding the homeless and hungry, advocating for and providing affordable housing, and supporting the equality of LGBTQ people. Lunchtime Ministry (LTM) was started in the 1970’s by the people of St. Matthew Trinity. Through it we provide a warm meal, hospitality, and community for our neighbors who are homeless, marginally housed, or just hungry. Four mornings a week, St. Matthew Trinity’s Parish Hall becomes an oasis for those who need a nourishing meal and a place to sit with friends. Supported by donations and volunteers, LTM provides food and welcome to an average of 65 guests each day it is open.


Volunteers are always needed to prepare and serve meals and sort donations throughout LTM's open hours: Monday through Thursday from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM. To sign up, email us at We also accept donations during our open hours. Our main needs are for plates, cups, bowls, napkins, forks, spoons, coffee, sugar, and milk.
