St. Teresa serves the needs of our community by offering a Loaves and Fishes dinner for the elderly and homeless of the area. We provide a welcoming environment in which individuals are treated with dignity, respect, and courtesy. Our parish offers hot, nutritionally-balanced meals on each Friday of the month. We also partner with local restaurants to help prepare and serve our meals.
In addition to the meal, we also provide a “to-go” sack lunch which usually includes a sandwich, piece of fruit and a juice box. At each meal, parishioner volunteers serve approximately 70 guests; that equates to over 280-350 dinners served per month.
