For over thirty years, volunteers from St. James Episcopal Church in Painesville- along with its many partner churches and community groups- have been feeding the poor out of a vintage 1950s kitchen.

Parishioners began the St. James Lunch Program in 1983 to feed the hungry on Saturdays and Sundays. As the need and support from neighboring churches grew, we began providing lunch on legal holidays and simple evening meals on Monday and Tuesday as well.

Devoted volunteers from thirteen churches and several secular groups feed the homeless, the mentally ill and displaced, the working poor, the aged on fixed incomes, and transient families seeking work and stability in our community.

But now the time has come to update our building to current health and building department standards, so that we can continue this valuable work… and expand the scope of what we do from a simple soup kitchen to a full-service community center for one and all.

That’s why the Soup to Service Campaign was launched.

We plan to embed bricks in the floor of the dining area so that our donors can be remembered. You may wish to have your own name, the name of a loved one, your church or a reference to a favorite bible verse engraved on your brick.

If you start a team which raises more than $1000, you will earn a brick. Or we will embed a brick for your donation of $1000 or more.
