Outreach - Southside Meal Program

This site is a St. Vincent de Paul meal site, located near 9th and Madison, which is one block north of Greenfield Avenue. On the second Tuesday of each month, parishioners from both St. Leonard and Bethel Lutheran, donate beef stew, Jello-O, cheese, and cake to serve 180 - 300+ people. Fruit and stew meat are paid for from funds from St. Leonard and Bethel Lutheran. Prepared food is dropped off at St. Leonard between 4:00pm-4:30pm, it is then taken to the meal site by the volunteer servers for the day. Our group does not have to help with clean-up and they usually return to St. Leonard no later than 7:00pm.
In addition to the meal program, Entertainment Night is planned as a Christmas party. The Human Concerns Committee aids in the sponsoring of the program.
During the months of November / December,  a Coat Drive is held at St. Leonard with the meal program site as the recipient of the coats collected.
