In order to give our staff and volunteers a much-needed day off, we will not be open on Monday September 1st. And, it couldn’t come at a better time since we crushed our single-day record this week with 159 meals on Tuesday. Our previous high was around 130! What a day but we are always reminded of the story of Jesus feeding the masses with the measly few loaves and fishes. With God’s help, and the help of his good stewards who help support this ministry with their time, talents and treasures, we have been able to serve all who come. Thank you all!!
We are truly amazed and gratified at the support from the Pompano Beach Community! Clint Painter and Cathy Coney of Pompano Beach, FL Elks Lodge stopped by recently with several boxes of much-needed meat to be used in the direct feeding of the homeless and needy at our daily lunch.
We are very excited about a recently organized dinner dance to be held this month in order to raise money and create awareness of our life-changing organization.

These two wonderful people can be found almost every day manning the door or behind the scenes at the soup kitchen. Katie is working with Phyllis Rotonno to make the transition to director as seamless as possible. We find that our “guests” find the routine very comforting and therefore supports our Mission Statement to create a peaceful and safe environment.
Katie and her husband Jim, while officially “retired” have always felt the need to help those less fortunate. Jim is usually found behind the scenes and is helping with our community outreach and fund raising.
Please keep us in your prayers daily.
Newsletters are available to download or view. We love to keep all our supporters up to date with the latest.
This van is used almost every day for food pickups at local restaurants, food drives, grocery stores, etc. so our ability to feed those in need is heavily dependent on this vital piece of equipment. Our mechanic assures us, she doesn’t have many days left in her.
During this time of waiting for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ our Lord and
Savior, we are even more aware of the troubles of those around us. It is surprising how many of our regular visitors to our soup kitchen have issues other than poverty. Many are afflicted with severe mental and physical handicaps while others are saddled with a prison record or felony conviction which severely hampers their employment opportunities.
For those without family and friends to rely on for support, we like to think of our ministry as a “home away from home” which is why the focus is on providing a clean, non-preachy, and peaceful refuge. In order to do this we are in constant need of prayers and monetary support as well as creative and heart-felt programs to help those in need to find their way out what many see as a hopeless situation.
We will be closed on Christmas Day as well as New Year’s Day. The rest of the time we have decorated the dining room with cards made from a local school and other Chistmas decorations.
Please accept our wishes for a safe and wonderful celebration of the baby Jesus.
Please be advised that we will not be open on Thanksgiving Day. We will resume
operations on Friday, November 29th. May you and all your friends and families have a blessed Holiday and we pray constantly that those in need will find a safe and pleasant way to commune with others to give thanks to our wonderful God.
We were recently blessed by a wonderful group who provided a special lunch with food from Pollo Tropical. Not only did they bring all the chicken and sides, they stayed to help serve and clean up.
Our guests were pleasantly surprised by this treat. The young gentleman who organized it, wanted to do something special to help others on his own birthday. Thank you Richie and your amazing group.
