Monthly Exeter Meeting prepares a fresh cooked meal onsite for the residents of Opportunity House In Reading, PA each second Third day (Tuesday) of the month. The number of residents vary according to need at the time but may fluctuate between 40 to as many as 90, women, children and men.

"Opportunity House has been helping the homeless population of our area since 1984 and has expanded significantly since then. Our emergency shelter served over 500 people and 90,000 meals last year. We also offer a 24/7 childcare and learning center, services from the Children's Alliance Center, assistance for veterans, and reuse and recycle services that reinvest funds back into our agency to further support our mission and services.
