St. Mary's Soup Kitchen
The Soup Kitchen started in 1975 when Father Tom was able to serve only a few bowls of soup at first through the doors of the Rectory, during that year the Soup Kitchen grew to serve 75,000 meals. Now serving over 300,000 meals a year, the Soup Kitchen responds to the call of the Beatitudes to FEED THE HUNGRY. Soup and bread are provided seven days a week, and milk is served three times a week to all who come. The Soup Kitchen’s annual cost of $270,000 is made possible solely from monetary donations, so donations of money are always needed; however, donations of time and food are welcome as well.
