To help people out who need a meal we have a listing on the right hand side of this blog. I am going to add Simon's Soup Kitchen that is run out of the Parish Center at Our lady of Perpetual Help in Seaside Heights Tuesday and Friday nights, October thru April, 5:30 to 7 p.m.
There are not "means" testing. Everyone in need of a hot meal and/or fellowship are welcome.
The kitchen has served over 23,000 meals since it was opened in Feb. 2004. It currently serves about 225 meals each night. More than half of its diners are children.
Remember hearing how important breakfast is, especially for kids? In 2007 Simon's Soup Kitchen began its "Breakfast with Al" program. It provides the children of Simon's Soup Kitchen with a take home breakfast twice a week.
The kitchen is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus Council 8415 and relies on donations from individuals and organization. Each evening costs about $300. Donations can be made to Simon's Soup Kitchen, PO Box 551, Seaside Park, NJ 08752. Simon's Soup Kitchen is a 501.c.3 organization.
