Donate $1.00 to the Homeless by Giving Our Facebook Page a “Like” Today!
In 1984, 82 year old Mary McAnena helped a homeless woman in Hart Park, Orange, California. This was the beginning of Mary’s Kitchen. In 1994 the Kitchen moved to 517 West Struck in Orange, California. In 1995 the St. Joseph Health System Foundation granted the Kitchen the funds to buy modular buildings. Mary’s Kitchen had a permanent home. Mary’s Kitchen is staffed 100% by volunteers and underwritten by private donations from individuals, churches, local corporations, grocery stores, caterers,students from local schools including Chapman University and others.
On average 100 people come to the Kitchen each day for breakfast, a hot meal, a bag lunch to go for dinner, hot showers, clean clothes and attention from caring volunteers who give them hope. Mary passed away in December of 2003 at 100 years old, but her memory lives on weekly as volunteers gather to prepare meals and serve the local community daily.
