St James Thursday CookFest

Save to Favorites

St. James Episcopal Church



Overview: Help out in the St James Kitchen for two hours on Thursday afternoons where we prepare soup and pasta and other dishes for distribution to our unhoused neighbors. We provide all the ingredients, the recipes, and even an apron! You bring good spirit and a commitment to safe practices. Vaccination strongly recommended since this activity, by definition, takes place inside.

Mission: At St. James Episcopal Church, we assist our unsheltered population in Mid-City with accessing mobile shower stations provided by Shower of Hope, grab & go meals, and donated clothing. We provide takeaway lunches for our unhoused and underhoused neighbors. It's hard to overstate the importance of a well-rounded, healthy meal!

Volunteer Roles & Responsibilities: Volunteers will help with food preparation: chop, stir, taste for goodness, and clean up. The conversation is always lively. We will have all supplies necessary, including aprons for volunteers.

Impact: Provide for 150 meals of nutritious home cooked dishes for distribution at St James Soup Kitchen and Shower events.
