The Meal Ministry is growing!
We’re excited to announce that our Meal Ministry is expanding its efforts through a new partnership with Mission for the Homeless, a non-profit organization that visits the homeless in Oakland on a nightly basis offering food, clothing, prayer and support. Click below to watch the story of Vincent Pannizzo, the man behind Mission for the Homeless and join us in supporting his inspiring, Christ-centered outreach.
How you can help
Our meal ministry has been feeding the homeless since Thanksgiving 2015. It’s time to do more. You can show the love of Christ and make a difference in the lives of Oakland’s homeless who are in dire need.
Our goal is to build up and maintain a supply of the most essential items which Mission for the Homeless can consistently rely on and use in their nightly ministry. The following is a list of items and quantities we need your help to reach and maintain as soon as possible. You can drop off any quantity of these items to our church on Sundays or during the weekdays between 9 – 4pm. Please call or email Fr. Ninos Oshaana with any questions at 510-531-3400.
