St Maria's Meals

SMM Hickey Center - St. Maria's Meals Wednesday Dinner

Volunteer Project Description:

The Saint Maria's Meals Program was created in order to meet the needs of individuals and families by providing a warm and nutritious meal. Every Wednesday night outside the Catholic Charities Hickey Center, Saint Maria's Meals feeds men and women in need, many of whom experience homelessness. 

Volunteers serve meals to participants, assist in the set up and assist in the breakdown of the weekly program. Saint Maria's volunteers can be found not only serving meals to those in need, but sharing stories, smiles and words of encouragement with participants. Adaptable volunteers are needed to meet and feed those in need.

Please note volunteers under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Please pay attention to the weather forecast and dress accordingly; St. Maria's Meals takes place outside.

The Wednesday Night Dinner Program is located at 924 G Street NW, Washington, DC 20001.
