A Ministry of St. Matthew Catholic Church Mel’s Diner has been feeding people in dire need in Charlotte since 2001, without ever asking its patrons to pay a dime and with nothing but a big heart and a lot of effort.
Mel’s Diner organizes fresh food and home cooked meals for truly needy people. They also pick up food that would otherwise go un-eaten or thrown away and give it out selflessly to people who are truly hungry.
Duke/Toni Oxford and friends otherwise known as Mel’s Diner is a non-funded group of people who simply care.
They say that any kind of news is good news. Good news must be even better!
There's always room for more at Mel's.
Everyday Heroes step up to feed the hungry.
Children Feeding Children Makes a Difference
Here's Duke and Mel's Diner in the news on WBTV 3 Charlotte.
Flo's Diner has arrived with great success. After a great recruiting season more than 40 angels have joined to form Flo's Diner. These wonderful ladies have permitted Mel's to grow into new areas, as well as reaching many more children. The Angels are active, enjoy the experience and are welcomed by all.
We have also delved into more than just feeding those in need. Many of those, being refugees, come here with practically nothing. We are trying to fulfill some of their other needs as well - bicycles, microwaves, vacuum cleaners, sewing machines, kitchen items, clothes, even some furniture. We appreciate all these donations and our volunteers love distributing them.
