The Soup Kitchen completed its 3rd year of feeding the hungry in our community with a fabulous meal of grilled burgers and hot dogs with barbeque appropriate sides served by Holy Cross. The 104 patrons served that evening were very complimentary.
During this past year a total of 2,421.5 volunteer hours were logs by volunteers from all coalition churches. Holy cross volunteers logged 352.25 of these hours. This number is actual serve time on Thursdays but not the many hours spent shopping, cooking, bread and donut pick-ups, etc.
All of the volunteer efforts combined to serve 4,305 dinners in-house and 1,253 take-out dinners. There are also 60 sack lunches prepared each week for patrons to eat the next day. That’s an amazing 5,558 total dinners and 720 sack lunches for the year!
This ministry has indeed been a blessing to our community.
Thanks to all who have helped to make it a success. All praise and glory be to God for blessing this ministry abundantly.
