Feed the Homeless at St.Vincent de Paul Dining Hall

HAPPY NEW YEAR, Godless DoGooders:

We are switching to the first Sunday morning of every month starting now, on January 5, for serving lunch to the homeless. 

This charity is run by the Roman Catholic Church so be aware there will be a prayer circle with joining of hands for the Lord’s Prayer just before the homeless enter the building.  We tend to simply stay seated but it’s up to the individual, of course.  

For most this is a very moving experience and they need our help so I hope you will seriously consider joining us.

(No open-toes shoes due to county health regulations.  There are several St. Vincent de Paul Dining Halls in the Valley, so check the address!)

Healthy meals range from tasty burgers to hearty stews.







The Society of Really Big, Really Friendly Dining Rooms

468,000 families are in need across Arizona.

Our Dining Rooms give those in-need a chance to have a sit-down meal, but it's not enough. Donate today and have food served to them.

When you visit us to serve or be served, it's rarely just about eating. Volunteers create an experience many of us take for granted, an opportunity not only to eat but to meet and greet as well. It's also a chance to discover other ways to help our guests. Stomachs and hearts are filled in five dining rooms, where 3,500 nourishing, hot meals accompany our hospitality every day. Thanks to recent donor generosity, our Family Dining Room now offers many of the amenities of a supportive home or school atmosphere, including communal reading and group art projects for our younger guests, plus one-on-one tutoring programs and fun educational activities.

    Lunch on New Year’s Day at Aunt Chilada’s was attended by 12 of our members, so a good turnout! In the “spirit” of The Sunday Assembly out of England, we listened to Steve Martin on the David Letterman show sing “The Atheist Song”, (also known as “Atheists Don’t Have No Songs”), heard an atheist bear-in-the-woods joke, heard and watched several other related videos and had an awesome group discussion. We also had great acoustics and good food. We’ll do it again soon at which time Dick Miller has agreed to give us a brief synopsis of Lawrence Krauss’ “A Universe From Nothing”. (Thanks, Dick, because it’s mud to me!)

    Also if you want to share your very own 1 minute atheist “elevator speech”, that would be great. And also next time if you want to, bring your laptops and read or show us your favorite atheist jokes, poems and short videos. Unbelievably Yours,
