Welcome to Sharing God’s Bounty!
Welcome to Sharing God’s Bounty. If you are hungry and would like a nutritious hot meal on Tuesday evening, or if you are a volunteer and would like a warm and hospitable setting to offer your services, you have found the right place. Sharing God’s Bounty serves free, hot meals from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM every Tuesday in the multi-purpose room at St. Philomene School, 2320 El Camino Ave just east of the corner of Bell and El Camino.
Although some folks call us a “soup kitchen,” we have never served soup. Instead, we have always offered a complete, nutritious, well-balanced meal: a main course that always includes meat, a salad and/or a vegetable or fruit, a starch, and bread, along with drinks of milk, coffee and/or juice.
We take our ministry seriously. We like to demonstrate that we serve dignity, and along with dignity we offer a hot meal.
While we serve in a Catholic School gym, our meals are non-denominational, i.e. our guests and our volunteers come from all walks of life and can be members of any religious denomination or none at all. The only requirement for our guests is that they be hungry. The only requirement for our volunteers is that they have a loving heart.
St. Francis said, “Preach the Gospel at all times and, if necessary, use words.” At Bounty we believe that after serving our guests a great meal with dignity and a warm smile, words are unnecessary.
Serving Sacramento since 1983
We have been humbly serving those in need in Sacramento every Tuesday since our opening meal on January 29, 1983. In our more than 30 years of service to the Sacramento community, we have been privileged to serve over one million meals to those in need! We thank all those who make possible our continuing service to our guests, our volunteers, and our community.
