Serving Christmas meals Valley wide

SVdP will serve 4,500 meals Christmas Day through new 'Hybrid Dining Model'

On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at St. Vincent de Paul, guests can find hope in a hot meal and the tradition of Christmas dinner carrying on at the nonprofit’s five charity dining rooms. SVdP is set to serve 4,500 Christmas meals to individuals experiencing homelessness and low-income families on Dec. 24 and Dec. 25.

Holiday meals will be served through SVdP’s “hybrid dining” model, which launched earlier this year at select dining rooms and offers guests a choice of socially distanced indoor dining or to-go meals.

“We know how important holiday meals are to the traditions we keep with our families, which is why we want everyone to have access and feel welcome to dine with us however they choose” said Food Services Director Danielle McMahon said. “Here at St. Vincent de Paul we especially take joy in sharing in the Christmas spirit with a celebratory hot meal packed with nutrients, holiday favorites and made with love by our kitchen.”

Meals will vary by location, but will be holiday themed.

If you or someone you know needs a Christmas meal, please join us! All are welcome.

Those interested in serving with SVdP throughout the holiday season are encouraged to volunteer either in-person or virtually. Note Christmas opportunities often booked months in advance and that we need help all the other days of the season too! Please consider volunteering "off holiday."

Thank you to all those for partnering with us all year long to serve mothers, fathers, children and families. We wish you peace and joy this Christmas!
