Host‑for‑a‑Day Campaign Supports Mission To Feed Hungry
The Saint Francis of Assisi Kitchen in Scranton is conducting its annual Host‑for‑a‑Day campaign. For a donation of $100 or more, an individual, a family, a business, a community organization or faith-based group can help sponsor a day’s meal at the Kitchen and be recognized as a “host” of that meal.
The Kitchen serves 200 hot, nutritious meals every day to men, women and children in need. This includes meals served at the Kitchen as well as weekly outreach programs in Carbondale and Olyphant at parish locations and high-rise housing buildings. The Kitchen also operates the Saint Francis Client-Choice Food Pantry and the Saint Francis Free Clothing Store.
Now more than ever, our brothers and sisters in need are relying on us for help. Thanks to the generosity of individuals and organizations in our community, Saint Francis of Assisi Kitchen continues to serve the most vulnerable among us with hot, nutritious meals each day.
All past contributors to the campaign are receiving an appeal directly from the Kitchen through the mail. You can also make a Host‑for‑a‑Daygift by simply clicking on the button below.
Donations can also be made by calling the Kitchen at 570-342‑5556, or sending a check to Saint Francis of Assisi Kitchen, 500 Penn Avenue, Scranton PA 18509.
The culmination of the campaign will be marked with a Virtual Celebration consisting of a pre-recorded program. The release date will be Wednesday, April 27, at 6 p.m. on www.facebook.com/stfranciskitchen . Those who would like to sponsor the Virtual Reception are asked to call the Kitchen at 570-342‑5556.
