Standing on the Front Line

Posted on 12/09/2020 by Paz de Cristo

Responding to COVID-19

As we work through this pandemic together, rest assured that 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 more than 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

A hot, nourishing meal is served every night of the year, and food boxes are provided every weekday 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.
