Episcopal Church of the Saviour Soup Kitchen
Hanford, CA 93230
Details: Here, in the heart of California's San Joaquin Valley, in the midst of America's most productive agricultural region, many people are hungry. The need varies throughout the year, but for a significant portion of our population, hunger is a daily reality. For over 25 years, through the work of the Episcopal Church of the Saviour Soup Kitchen, many of Hanford's needier residents have found a safe, warm place to enjoy a nourishing meal. Meals are served Monday through Saturday and include soup, salad, bread, dessert and a beverage. The Ministry was started in 1985 by the Episcopal Church of the Saviour as a way of expanding its service to the local community. At that time there were no other services to provide food for the hungry of this community, so the parish decided that the soup kitchen would be a wonderful ministry opportunity.
