PERTH AMBOY – Reaching out to our “neighbors in need” is how Cathedral International’s Young Adult Outreach Team describes the new Sunday Soup Kitchen held from 2-4 p.m. every fourth Sunday of the month at Cathedral Family Life Center, 272 Madison Avenue.
“When most food banks and meal service providers have closed their doors for the weekend, we want to provide nutritious meals for our neighbors in need. We believe no one should go hungry,” said Cathedral’s Youth Pastor, Danielle Brown.
The entire meal service is run by young adults (between the ages of 18-35) from the church and local community. The weekend outreach is an expansion of Cathedral’s weekly Wednesday soup kitchen program which aims to promote healthy and nutritious living. In addition to serving meals, the Young Adult Outreach Team collaborates with other local organizations to provide free health screenings such as blood pressure and HIV/AIDS tests. Cloths, coats and shoes will be made available as well.
According to the team, the number of people coming for meals is increasing. “We have the space, hands and heart to provide meals every weekend,” said Brown. “All we need to expand this greatly needed mission are finances and food items.”
Everyone in need of a meal, health screenings and clothing is welcome to the Sunday Soup Kitchen. For more information and to make donations contact Pastor Danielle Brown at 1-732-826-5293.
