On Saturday, May 4,some members of Soup Kitchen Team 3 (Team Leader Lynn Taborsak, Bob Taborsak, Diane Purvis, Nancy Brown, Linda & Steve Schneider, Jyo Buyyala) will be returning to the Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen on Spring Street to help serve take-out meals and sandwiches that were cooked or prepared in volunteers’ homes or through donations. Unfortunately, we are not yet able to serve the guests a meal inside Dorothy Day Hospitality House.

You can also help feed our neighbors with a gift card in any amount from any local supermarket.. Lynn Taborsak has also been scheduling the sandwich donations so we have just the right amount each day at Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen. If you are interested in making sandwiches, please email her at We can all be an important part of the fight to end hunger in our community!

In the past couple of years, we have lost some of our Dorothy Day volunteers. Please consider volunteering to be on a DD Team – it only involves a few hours, 3 Saturdays per year. You will find it to be a very rewarding experience. Please contact Judy Lacker for more information or to sign up.

We have resumed collecting non-perishable food donations on Sunday mornings. Please place your food donations in the basket in the foyer. You can sign up to help transport the weekly collection to The Dorothy Day Hospitality House on Spring Street.
