The Jesus Center (at the site of the former Icehouse) is a non-profit organization, "offering hospitality in the name of Jesus." It has been helping to feed hungry people since 1980. The center offers breakfast and dinner Monday through Saturday. In addition, showers and grooming are available for men and women. In 2006, the center began handing out meal cards to businesses and citizens of Chico in the hope that those in need will be reminded of the center's accommodations. The Jesus Center is located at 1297 Park Avenue.
