Description:

St. John's Food for the Poor Program at the St. Francis Xavier Center

The St. Francis Xavier Center serves as a community soup kitchen for the St. John’s Food for the Poor Program. Our not-so-typical soup kitchen serves over 450 to 700 hot nutritious meals per day, five days a week, 52 weeks a year from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

It is just seventy-five steps from the former soup kitchen in St. John’s Church basement to the
St. Francis Xavier Center. Seventy-five steps and you have arrived at anything but “your typical soup kitchen!”

St. John's Food for the Poor Program Food Pantry
The on-site food pantry, located in the St. Francis Xavier Center, assists low income families in need and provides over 4,800 to-go boxes of food each year. In addition, pet food is available for their pets. All 20 of St. John’s Food for the Poor Programs are made available to our guests.

No one is turned away

Take-Out Food for the Homeless
Food assistance is provided to homeless individuals and families in need of help. Special take-out foods are given to the homeless people living under bridges, in cars or vans, in makeshift houses, in parking lots or in area woods. The center also provides social service referrals.

Working Poor Free "Box Lunches"
Many guests at our soup kitchen are the working poor. Many of these men and women are in low wage jobs or part-time employment and the individuals cannot afford to buy their own lunch.

To help solve this problem the soup kitchen provides the working poor a free “Box Lunch” take out service for those who cannot afford to buy lunch.

Just Say Yes to Fresh Fruit and Vegetables
The St. John’s Food for the Poor Program, in cooperation with one of its leading partners, Stop & Shop, developed a new program to promote good nutrition. The program is made available to low income families and provides them with free take-home fruits and vegetables each Saturday morning from 8:00 to 10:00 AM.
