St. Isabel’s Kitchen is a daily lunch program begun by the late Rev. Leonel Noia that has been serving the homeless and hungry of our community since 1986. The program is coordinated and staffed by dedicated volunteer parishioners. Lunch is served between 11:00—noon in a patio area behind the rectory hall constructed in 2012 to better serve program recipients.
Lunch normally consists of a bowl of soup, sandwich, fruit, dessert, and a bottle of water. This ministry is primarily funded through the generosity of our parishioners. St. Isabel’s Kitchen has also established partnerships with local grocery and warehouse chains and a food bank for their surplus food items.
More than 2,000 lunches are distributed monthly.
