St. Francis Soup Kitchen - Services

Clothes Closet.

At 7:00am on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month, fifty men's and fifteen women's Clothes Closet tickets are distributed to guests. Volunteers help these guests between 8am and 9:45 with a change of clothing and miscellaneous items.


Breakfast.

At 7am each Saturday, a small breakfast is served to dozens of people, many of whom have spent the night outside our facility.

Lunch.

Starting at 10am, guests are invited into our dining room for lunch where they are seated and served by our volunteers. A typical meal includes a salad, side, main course, dessert, and coffee. We also provide hundreds of loaves of bread ,rolls, bagels, and other baked goods. Occasionally we have a paperback book or a pair of reading glasses available.

Canned Goods Give-away.

Each Saturday, starting at 10am, we have a supply of 100 grocery bags filled with about a dozen canned goods. Bags are offered on request on a first-come, first-served basis. These goods are provided through a USDA/TFAP Commodities Food program managed by Farm Share.

Volunteers from St. Francis Soup Kitchen coordinate the canned goods pick-up and re-distribution. Our guests complete paperwork necessary to receive the donation.
