Dining with Dignity
What is DWD?
Through a partnership with the City of Lexington, and the Office of Homelessness, Prevention and Intervention, the Lighthouse Dining with Dignity program offers a safe, clean, indoor environment for people in need to eat hot lunch and dinner meals. Additionally, a Gospel message is shared at every meal.

12pm, Monday - Saturday
6pm, 7 days/week
