Very good news! The new bus purchased last year through generous donations is now completely renovated and ready to start serving food. Our thanks again to all who helped with this project. The Mobile Kitchen will offer hot lunches every 1st and 3rd Tuesday at St. Aloysius in Estacada and every Wednesday at St. Michaels in Sandy, and every Thursday at the Canby Service Center.
In addition to its weekly schedule the Mobile Kitchen will once again partner with the Oregon Food Bank, Clackamas Service Center and GracePointe Church for a nine week Summer Food Program beginning June 13th. From Noon to 2:00 pm at One Towne Center Apartments we will serve families who are experiencing food insecurity during the summer months. Donations of fresh produce from Oregon Food Bank will be in each food basket and St. Vincent de Paul will provide hot nutritious lunches. Volunteers from GracePointe will help in all aspects of the operation. Last year over 3,000 children and families were served by the Summer Food Program. Expansion to a year-round program is now in discussion
