Inspired by the spirit of St. Francis and under the pastoral leadership of Sacred Heart/St. Joseph Parish, this mission is an outward expression of our Catholic beliefs.
Volunteers make hundreds of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches daily. The rest of the menu varies day by day as God provides. Local grocery stores and restaurants donate liberally to help provide filling and nutritious food.
Can you help donate some lemonade drink mix or Gatorade? Sophia's Kitchen uses about 80 gallons of juice each day!
Sophia’s Kitchen is located next to Historic St. Joseph Church, 103 Richard Pryor Place in Peoria. Sophia's Kitchen is staffed by a dedicated group of volunteers, who give generously of their time so that no one goes hungry. Donations are accepted Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 3 PM.
