St. Augustine Hunger Center is an outgrowth of the ministry and service of St. Augustine Church. This parish has a long history of service from it's beginning in 1860 when it welcomed an impoverished immigrant community. It provided food for the poor during the depression and hard economic times.
The Hunger Center was founded as part of that outreach over 50 years ago.
The Hunger Center not only provides meals but addresses other needs of the poor and the homeless such as, food, clothing, emergency funding for rent and utilities, furniture, appliances as well as advocation for those poor seeking medical help.
The Hunger center is a response to the human need. Our prayer is that with support and help of the larger community we will be able to serve needy people in accordance with our mission and as completely as possible.
