Help Needed for Publix Bakery Pickups Monday and Tuesday

The amazing bakery employees at Publix in Margate prepare a grocery basket or two of their day-old items each and every day for us to pick up and use for the dessert in our lunch service. This is how we’re able to serve such yummies like Key Lime Pie and Chocolate Cheesecake!

Sadly, the only way for us to get this is to rely on volunteers to pick it up early morning and deliver it to the soup kitchen.

The details are pick up by 8am at the latest from the Margate, FL Publix Super Market at Palm Lakes Plaza. The store is located at the corner of Rock Island and Atlantic. We have other volunteers for the rest of the week but right now we are needing Monday and/or Tuesday pickups. No special vehicle is needed since the quantities aren’t that large but we do recommend bringing boxes or baskets to protect your vehicle’s interior in case of an unwanted spill.

If you know of anyone who would be able to help, have them please call us at 954-968-7550 asap or use the contact form or via our facebook page.

Merry Christmas

We are open this whole week as usual leading up to Christmas but will be closed on Monday, December 26th.

We pray for a safe and blessed Christmas to all of our volunteers and supporters as well as for those who need our help the most this holiday season.

Important Request

Due to the strong and often differing opinions about the upcoming elections, we strongly request that all political and controversial religious discussions be avoided while in service or dining at our Soup Kitchen.

Part of our Mission Statement states that “The primary mission is to provide hot lunches Monday through Friday in a peaceful and sheltered environment …”

While we are tolerant of all beliefs and religions that do not harm others, we cannot tolerate anything that will disrupt our peaceful atmosphere.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Katie Crissy, Director

Campaign Started for a New Roof

We hate to use the word “desperate” but the word unfortunately fits our current situation. It has been suggested that we start a campaign on the popular crowd funding site, GoFundMe so that’s exactly what we’ve done. Please support any way possible and all funds raised will go 100% toward either a new roof or a waterproof coating on the existing roof. Either one will be costly because of the age, size and present condition of our 40+ year-old building. Please visit our Page https://www.gofundme.com/2q8qg6jk.
