Mels Diner


Welcome to Mels Diner - Chldren Feeding Children.

St. Matthew Catholic Church

Duke/Toni Oxford and friends otherwise known as Melís Diner is a non-funded group of people who simply care.

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 and the many people who donate their time, effort and resources make all this possible.

Hereís a Duke and Melís Diner in the news on WBTV 3 Charlotte.

Flo's Diner

Flo's Diner, an extension of Melís, has arrived with great success. After a great recruiting season, 24 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.

Besides just being hungry, which is more difficult for growing children than anyone, Melís Diner occasionally accepts non-monetary donations of childrens clothing, jackets and shoes.
These items are always in need and gratefully accepted.

More people than you may realize have needed help at one point or another.
