Walk-In Supper

What is the Walk-In Supper?
St. Peter the Apostle parishioners provide a hot meal for approximately 100 poor and/or homeless people from Bergen County at the shelter in Hackensack.  It is usually on the First Thursday of every other month beginning in February of each year.

What is the time commitment?
The time commitments are not that great and Parishioners can participate in this ministry on many different levels.  Volunteers are needed to shop, bake, set-up serve and clean up.  The group assembles on that Thursday between 3:15 PM and 3:30 PM in the Church parking lot.  They usually return to St. Peter’s around 6:30 p.m.

How can I help?
You can buy the ingredients and prepare a large salad, or help by cooking and heating through an already prepared frozen entrée that is provided to you such as Lasagna, meatballs or something very similar.  You can also help to setup, serve the meal and clean up afterwards.

Who can participate in this ministry?
In addition to adult volunteers, confirmation candidates and their parents are encouraged to participate.  Some parishioners participate in this program as a family ministry.
