Summer Suppers

Explore the heartwarming collaboration between houses of worship like Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Parish and other compassionate organizations, uniting for more than a decade to offer nightly suppers from May to September. Originating as a response to the seasonal gap left by the PADS Shelter Program, this initiative has blossomed into a supportive network. Together, we’ve cultivated a community where all are welcome to share nourishing meals and genuine support. Whether you’re in need or ready to lend a hand, there’s a place for you in our community-driven initiative. Let’s build a network of care and compassion together!

Beyond addressing homelessness and food insecurity, here at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament, we extend our reach to host a community supper. Embracing others in the community who may need a little extra help, such as seniors, widows, widowers and single parents, we create a warm space where all are welcome to share balanced meals and support. If you're seeking a hearty, nutritious homecooked meal, join us at the table—no questions asked!
