Since 1972, St. Francis Center has provided relief and support to homeless and extremely low-income individuals and families in Los Angeles. Much more than a soup kitchen or a food pantry, we offer a unique range of services to sustain and empower those in need. Welcoming all with joy, dignity and compassion, we dedicate ourselves every day to Serving Hope in our community.
Through SFC’s Homeless Well-Being Program, we offer daily meal service for homeless and near-homeless individuals in our community. St. Francis Center provides the homeless with warm meals and sack lunches six days a week through our served meal service and traditional holiday meals. Unique to the Center, however, is our commitment to treating our homeless guests with dignity, first by greeting them by name and then serving meals “restaurant style” at round tables in our dining room. Homeless guests are also invited to take a shower each Monday morning and utilize our resource services, including mail service and community referrals. As we attend to the basic necessities of our guests, we strive to be a source of hope in their lives.
This opportunity takes place every Tuesday-Friday from 7:00 am to 9:30 am.
