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).
