Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen

Director: Gail Truchard

The soup kitchen attached to St. Francis Mission provides a Saturday noontime meal service for the Arbor Hill section of Albany, one of the city’s poorest neighborhoods.  Through donations and the efforts of volunteers from various area churches, it serves a full meal to individuals and families who have little or no other sources of food available to them.

We serve lunch from 11:30-1
On the second, third, fourth, and fifth weeks of the month we offer, subject to availability, additional pantry items, personal hygiene, diapers, home goods, and clothes.  Our mission statement is, “Bringing People to Jesus!” through our mission purpose, which is to “Feed the Body, Heart, Mind, and Soul!”
