The mission of the volunteer-led Society of St. Vincent de Paul Community Kitchen and Resource Center is to provide those in need solace, meals and services in an environment that fosters self-sufficiency.
Nearly 200 people come through our doors each day—365 days each year. They are from various walks of life and situations, just down on their luck, or completely without means. They are all hungry and in need of a sanctuary.
So we feed them.
Through the kindness of individual donors we are able to provide them with a nutritious hot meal—often the only food they will eat that day.
Our referral services help point them towards longer term help, but it’s not an easy road for most of them. While they work on rebuilding their lives, we offer a safe, dependable source of daily sustenance.
We have changed our name
The St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen Chapel will now be known as St. Vincent de Paul Community Kitchen and Resource Center. This new name portrays the growth and diversity of services we offer to our community. This is huge step forward for all of us and we thank all of you for your support.
Golf Tourney A Success!
All of us here would like to give a huge thank you to Dee’s Den, located on Belcher Road in Largo. They held their annual Golf Tournament and raised over $8,000. A special thank you to the original owners Frank and Shirley Bingham as well as Judy and Lisa, the new owners of Dee’s Den who have decided to continue the tradition of holding the Tourney for us.
