Hot Meals Ministry

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Sandwich and Hot Food ministries are suspended onsite. However, there are opportunities to continue serving the poor offsite. Please contact Misty Jesse for further information.

Our Hot Meals Ministry serves 80-250 hot evening meals every week to the homeless and working poor of San Pedro and Long Beach. Our volunteers buy, prepare, cook, and serve the meals. Some of the facilities we support have full kitchens, so we prepare the meals on-site. Some of the facilities we serve have very little space, so the meals are either prepared at home or in our church kitchens.

How can you help? There are two ways you can participate in this wonderful ministry:

  • Time – You can take on one or all of the steps necessary to serve a meal, from buying, to preparing and serving. Whatever your schedule allows.
  • Treasure – You can contribute to St. John Fisher Charitable Outreach (Obra Buena). Contributions to Obra Buena are separate from our general collection, so they are not used to determine our archdiocesan church assessment or our
    Together in Mission goal. Every penny received is distributed to the needy in our community; the more you give, the more we distribute.You will find Obra Buena coupons as part of your monthly coupon packet.  You can also give to Obra Buena online through Faith Direct.
