St. Mary's Food Kitchen

On the first Monday of each month, Prince of Peace serves a hot meal to the poor and disadvantaged of Kansas City. Parish members volunteer to prepare and serve the food.

Prepare a dish: On the third weekend of the month, casserole dishes are placed in the Gathering Area in the back of the Church. Parishioners are asked to take a pan and prepare a dish. Casseroles should be returned to the Parish Hall Kitchen on the First SUNDAY of the month between 7:00 and 11:00 AM or brought Parish Hall kitchen before 9:00 AM the day of service.

Serving: We meet in the SMT Parish Hall and leave for the Food Kitchen at 9:05AM. Children attending must be Confirmation age or older. We can only accommodate a limited number of young people, so please call to reserve your spot. All children need to be accompanied and supervised by their own parent and/or legal guardian to participate. Our day to serve is every 1st Monday of each month.
