Mobile Kitchen

 

A Newly Renovated Bus puts the Wheels back on the Mobile Kitchen.MK Exterior

In 2014, the original Blue Bird school bus that had served hundreds of thousands of meals to children and families mostly in rural areas, finally succumbed to the high cost of maintenance and repairs. Thanks to generous grants and other fundraising totaling more than $222,000 a new bus was purchased and in May of 2016 it was completely retrofitted and went back on the road. The fully contained St. Vincent de Paul Mobile Kitchen will again serve our communities’ working poor, families, homeless, and children in rural areas where resources are limited and food and daily meals are less available. We serve whoever is in need of the services we provide.
