Vincent's Community Outreach
**Covid 19 Update**
Due to the COVID 19 outbreak, in the interest of public health and the safety of our Staff, Volunteers and Guests we have changed certain processes in relation to our Meals Program. We typically serve meals in the Parish Hall but COVID restrictions require we serve guests through the lunch window, limit the number of volunteers, require mask use, and use social distancing to protect our Staff, Volunteers, and Clients.
Dinner "Meals" Program
Our Meals Program runs from the 22nd - 1st of each month at 5pm. This program is run by the support of our volunteers who offer to cook and serve our guests a homemade dinner each evening. In 2019 we served 19,000 dinners to our Meals guests.
A group of volunteers, affectionately known as "The Sewing Ladies" faithfully work during meals mending our homeless guests clothing and, more recently, sewing masks to give to all our visitors to help protect them from COVID19.
Please check out our "Volunteer" Page for more information about volunteering for this program.
Serving our Community
The issue we have now is very serious. We serve 250 people each night. The guests are so appreciative; It's really hard for them to get a home-cooked meal out on the streets.
I don't know what we would do without the meals program in our lives. My daughter and I really appreciate the delicious dinner we get each month.
Each month a group of volunteers, "The Sewing Ladies" set up a place where our meals guests can get a pair of pants patched or ripped clothes repaired.
