St. Francis of Assisi Kitchen’s Host-for-a-Day campaign

Saint Francis of Assisi Kitchen has launched its 2023 Host-for-a-Day campaign, which is the primary means of financial support for the Kitchen’s mission to provide a free daily meal and other services to the needy in our area.

For a donation of $100 or more, an individual, family, business, community organization or faith-based group can help to sponsor the day’s meal. Recognized sponsorships begin at the $500 contribution level.

In effect, each contributor becomes a “host” for a day. Contributors may then select a date on which they, or someone they designate or memorialize, will be recognized as the provider for that meal.
