St. Mary's Food Kitchen

st marys 1

As a parish family St Michael has been serving a hot lunch meal on the 1stSunday of every month for over 10 years.  Because of the popularity of this community service project at  St Michael we joined forces in January 2010 with Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church for another service day on the 3rdSaturday of the month.  On each service date we typically serve between 275 and 325 people of which about 10% are children, 15% are homeless and most of the remaining clients are unemployed or underemployed.  For some it is the only hot meal of the day and for others it may be the only meal of the day.  A typical Sunday morning at St. Mary’s food kitchen includes 20 servers, 30 parishioners who have prepared a casserole and about 15 parishioners who have prepared a dessert.  St Michael encourages families to serve together and welcome children over the age of 7 who will be accompanied by a parent on a one to one basis.   Throughout the year, many different groups have the privilege of preparing and serving food to those in need.

How to get involved

To Serve

Sign up to serve at the food kitchen after weekend Masses one week prior to the 1stSunday service date.  Separate sign-up sheets are available for both the 1st Sunday and 3rdSaturday at that time.  Because of the popularity of this Community, Service and Outreach project for St Mary’s Food Kitchen the sign-up sheets are rotated between the 5:00 Saturday evening Mass and the 7:30 and 9:00 Sunday morning Masses.  Rotating the sign-up sheet availability gives the people that attend a later Sunday Mass a chance to volunteer.

To Prepare Food

 Pick up a casserole pan with a recipe or a dessert request after weekend Masses one week prior to service date.
