St Vinnys Bistro is not a soup kitchen. We provide three hot nutritious meals each day, 365 days a year, to adults in the Courtyard area of the multi-agency, multi-service Haven for Hope homeless campus.
We also provide sack lunches for the working homeless, as well as snacks for those who need to have food with their medication.
Additionally, we provide food service training to the homeless who wish to learn a skill that will lead them to a stable and sustainable future. Currently, we employ four permanent line cooks, all of whom were formerly homeless, and four temporary line cooks, all of whom are currently homeless. This on-the-job training provides upward economic mobility and hope to the homeless who participate in the program, ensuring they have the means to lift themselves out of homelessness.

Service is limited to adult homeless individuals due to Haven for Hope Courtyard policy.
