Our Brothers and Sisters at St Francis Table
Half of our patrons are post-psychiatric patients who are unable to work due to their illness. Many of our patrons spend most of their meager income on accommodation. About one quarter of our patrons are senior citizens who come for nourishment and companionship. We also provide meals to single parents, refugees, the unemployed, transients, ex-convicts and people living in our city’s streets, parks and alleys.
In keeping with our Franciscan heritage, no one is turned away without the offer of a meal. We request a small donation of one dollar which is to help our brothers and sisters retain their sense of dignity. A meal at St. Francis Table is more than simply another handout, but an opportunity for community, advocacy and friendship.
