The restaurant serves 35,000 meals per year, and over 50,000 customers patronize the store annually. This affords abundant opportunities each day to share the love of Christ and His saving message, through healthy food and products, through Christian literature and Bible studies, and through the various community health programs we engage in throughout the year.
