Once a month, a group of St. Bede parishioners prepares, delivers and serves the evening meal to the women staying at the Miryam’s House. Miryam’s House is a program for homeless women and those at risk of homelessness. It has been providing a continuum of care programs since 1987.
St. Bede volunteers serve their neighbors in need and perform one of the corporal works of mercy: feeding the hungry. St. Bede has been involved in the program for over fifteen years.
How You Can Help
On the 2nd Monday of every month the volunteers prepare a meal for about 50 women. The St. Bede coordinator decides the menu each month. The recipes are kept simple and seasonal. Volunteers prepare an entrée, salad, vegetable, fruit, bread and dessert. Each person volunteers to prepare a specific part of the meal.
Once prepared, the food is placed in a disposable container and delivered to the St. Bede rectory by 2:30 PM. Other volunteers deliver and serve the meal at the shelter.
This is a wonderful volunteer opportunity for people who love to cook!
