Our Soup Kitchen mission is served jointly with St. Mary’s church in Lake Forest on the 3rd Friday of the month at Holy Family Soup Kitchen at 914 8th Street, Waukegan IL.
Beginning in November 2017, we will be collecting food donations and serving as a church during the months of May- September (beginning May 18, 2018).
For Food Donations: Please bring food donations to First Pres anytime until 4:00 PM on Friday. Please leave food in the kitchen near Fellowship Hall. Please mark “Soup Kitchen”.
For Servers: We use the Parish House next to the church and the parking lot on the West side, at the northeast corner of 8th and Victory Avenue. Park there and enter at the back of the building and go to the lower level. Please arrive between 4:30 and 4:45 PM, if possible. We serve food from 5:30 to 6:30. We are finished with clean-up by about 7:00 PM or so.
In the months of October-April, we encourage you to support our PADS mission; however, anyone who is interested in personally continuing Soup Kitchen with St. Mary’s is welcome to join the St. Mary’s volunteers during the months of October-April. Those who wish to donate food to Soup Kitchen during these months can drop it off at St. Mary’s Parish Center (201 E. Illinois Road) between 8:30 am and 3:00 pm on soup kitchen day. For more information, feel free to contact Ellen Kelly from St. Mary’s directly at (847.295.4649) email@example.com
