Kings Democrats Join ECoS Mission to Feed the Hungry

Cathy & Susan helping out at the Episcopal Church of the Savior Soup Kitchen in downtown Hanford.

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 37 years, through the hospitality and hosting of the Episcopal Church of the [Savior] Soup Kitchen, many of Hanford’s needier residents have found a safe, climate controlled place to enjoy a nourishing meal. Meals are served Monday through Saturday and include soup, salad, bread, dessert and a beverage and a sack lunch on Sundays.. The Ministry was started in 1986 by the Episcopal Church of the Savior 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.

Happy to help.

Members of the Kings County Democratic Central Committee have been enlisted by church staff to help the cause. Each 3rd Monday of the month is our slot, our day to give along with other organizations on the ECoS team, participating in providing a noon meal to those who have little or no means to eat a meal on any given day. If you would like to help, just stop by the church. If you’d like to help in a financial capacity, stop by the church or click here.
