Our Support for the Capitol Hill United Methodist Church (CHUMC) and Sunday Suppers meals

The St. Mark’s Soup Kitchen Program functions in support of two programs providing meals to homeless and needy neighbors.  We provide parishioner-provided casseroles to CHUMC and volunteer-prepared, monthly sandwiches to Sunday Suppers in Washington, DC, on a year-round basis. The program operates within guidelines of the St. Mark’s Outreach Board, which provides funding.

 Monthly Volunteer Activities (January-December)

First Sunday:  In the Nave - Pick up a casserole pan, which includes an information sheet, a label, a calendar for future contributions and a simple casserole recipe (with other casserole options).

Second Sunday:  Bring your casserole(s) to church, to   either of three Fall-Spring three services (9:00 a.m.,11:15 a.m. and 5:00 P.M.). Leave your casserole(s) in the Nave, near the High Altar or in the kitchen (adjacent to the Parish Hall).

Third Sunday:  Help other volunteers prepare baloney and cheese sandwiches in the Parish Hall, 4:30 – 5:00 P.M. for same day delivery to the Sunday Suppers organization.  Sandwiches are quickly prepared in “assembly-line” manner and are usually packaged and boxed for delivery within 30-40 minutes.

Requirements:  Adults, teens and children are welcome! There are no age restrictions (child care is not provided).

Co-Managers:  Jack Richards (703) 751-1456;  Alix Periera (917) 723-2308; and Anne Fiala (1-651-497-1060).
