The Agape Feast Community Meals is a new program developed once the COVID-19 pandemic abruptly ended the CAST overnight winter sheltering due to church building closures. The City of Chesapeake Department of Human Services was able and continues to house approximately 24 homeless guests. The Agape Feast Community Meals program was started to organize churches and groups in the preparation of the delivered dinners. There is a protocol in place to minimize contact and COVID-19 exposure. For churches and organizations to volunteer to host a week (Monday- Sunday), Mercy Chefs has volunteered to cover meal prep for two of the dinners (not consecutive days).
