Community Service at Mary’s Kitchen

The start of Mary’s Kitchen was 84 year old Mary McAnena helping a homeless woman in hart Park in 1984. She would continue to help the poor for the next 18 years, until she passed away at the age of 100 years old. Now other have taken her place.

It took 10 years from those humble beginnings before Mary and her volunteers found a permanent location at 517 West Struck in Orange, California. A year later the St. Joseph Health System Foundation granted the Kitchen the funds to buy modular buildings.

According to their website:

Mary’s Kitchen is staffed 100% by volunteers and underwritten by private donations from individuals, churches, local corporations, grocery stores, caterers, students from local schools including Chapman University and others.
