Neighbors Helping Neighbors Yesterday and Today
No man, woman or child should ever be hungry. Unfortunately in Worcester, Massachusetts that is not the case. Today an increasing number of the inner city’s homeless, poor and marginalized people are seeking help from St. John’s Food for the Poor program at 44 Temple Street in the heart of Worcester, Massachusetts.
For 177 years, St. John’s Church has lived out its mission by providing sustenance and dignity to anyone who comes to their doors. Today, St. John’s Food Pantry is the only place in the city where the hungry can receive a hot breakfast. However, the one-stove kitchen and dining area located beneath St. John’s can no longer accommodate the volume of people who need food. We need more space.
