  • Are you in need of healthy, hot meals?
  • Would you like to enjoy meals while meeting new people?

I was homeless many years ago. A staff member from EZRA was doing outreach and said come to the JUF Uptown Cafe. I had just had a stroke and I knew that 4 times a week I would have a predictable meal that would be healthy. I am still here and forever grateful to EZRA and the JUF Uptown Cafe.
