St. Francis Feeds – Oak City Outreach Center!
Our mission is to reach out in a special way and promote the human dignity of the poor, suffering and oppressed people in low-income areas of the community.
For a number of years we have been preparing meals each month and serving them to people living in a Southeast Raleigh neighborhood near the Safety Club on Branch Street. The community there has been very grateful for our assistance but the need has changed. So we have moved to a new location. Volunteers from St. Francis will now prepare meals and serve them to individuals experiencing homelessness and/or food insecurity in downtown Raleigh at Oak City Outreach Center.
Oak City Outreach Center is coordinated by Catholic Charities and is a collaboration of the city of Raleigh and the Raleigh Wake Partnership to End and Prevent Homelessness. It is located at 215 S. Person Street 27609 near Moore Square in downtown Raleigh. The mission of the center is to provide a place of hospitality on weekends where people can gather to receive and give nourishment that comes from sharing of food and fellowship.
We are very excited to be able to serve over 200 people in need at a time.
We donate food, serve a meal, and/or visit with homeless and hungry guests of OCOC.
