Nature and Purpose of Agency

The soup kitchen at St. Joe's has been running every Saturday for over 20 years.  Each Saturday, volunteers come together to prepare a hot meal for 150-200 people.  Many of the people who come to lunch are homeless, elderly or living on a very limited income.  The soup kitchen is funded by outside organizations, and St. Joseph's parish supports the program by donating the use of its basement.  Volunteers come from the parish, corporate volunteer groups, local universities, and the community at large.


Tasks Available for Students

Saturdays from 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m.  Assist with preparing and serving meals.  Students must be present for the entire time. 


Time Requirements
