  • Low sugar fruit with pop tops
  • Individual applesauce
  • Fruit leather

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. 

  • Sophia's Kitchen is in need of  volunteers to wash dishes. Help is needed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, for a once weekly, 4 hour shift. It's great to do with a friend, so apply together!
