STANDING ON THE FRONT LINE

Responding to COVID-19

Throughout this pandemic, Paz de Cristo continues to feed hungry neighbors in need.

Thanks to incredibly caring volunteers and generous donors, we are standing on the front line. In fact, we’ve been providing dinner every night for 33 years, and we haven’t missed a meal yet.

Hunger is satisfied and hearts are full at Paz de Cristo. Here’s how we are pressing on.

How We Help

It all starts with a hot, nutritious meal served every night of the year.  We also provide food boxes every weekday through various Case Managers and hold three general public distributions each month at Paz de Cristo.

A hot shower and clean clothing give our guests a fresh start. Basic needs for food, water and hygiene are met first.

Personal, one-on-one assistance finding shelter, landing a new job, and getting government-issued identification help people get back on their feet.

We are More than a meal. We Feed, Clothe & Empower.

 

FEED

Nightly Meal Service

We have re-opened our dining room at half capacity and continue to provide Grab n’ Go meals for those who would prefer to take their meal out.  All are welcome to receive a hot, nourishing meal along with a peanut butter & jelly sandwich to go as a snack.

Emergency Food Boxes

Contact-free food boxes are offered on the first, second and third Tuesday of every month.  Seniors are welcome to get a food box on the third Thursday of each month.

Food Boxes for Case Workers

Food boxes are provided every weekday to Case Workers who deliver them to their Clients.

 

CLOTHE

Our shower program operates every Wednesday from 8:00am -12:00pm. Clean clothing and hygiene kits are provided to give our guests a fresh start.

 

EMPOWER

Personal, one-on-one assistance helps those in need:

    • – find short-term shelter and permanent housing,
    • – secure benefits,
    • – find a job,
    • – get government-issued identification and
    • – receive medical attention from our Circle the City’s mobile medical clinic.

     

    This powerful intervention of food, clothing, shelter and jobs is helping end the cycle of poverty.

    Lives are changed every day at Paz de Cristo. Be inspired by real stories of victory.
