Cathedral Soup Kitchen, Inc.
November 18, 2010
As a volunteer and board member for six years, I have watched Cathedral Kitchen improve the lives of Camden's poor in many ways. Guests dine in a respectful atmosphere. They are served with dignity. They show gratitude. Through the medical and dental clinics their physical conditions are cared for. The culinary arts training program prepares over 50 students a year for jobs, and helps them find them. The CK social worker helps guests find housing and program placement. Cathedral Kitchen has become a beacon of hope in Camden.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
speaking to students who told of how Cathedral Kitchen improved their lives by giving them an alternative to crime. Guests told of how eating meals at Cathedral Kitchen enabled them to save money so they could pay their utility bills.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Increase its scope to offer more services such as more job training and placement.
Board Member & I serve on the board, raise money, serve meals and tutor students in the culinary arts program.
