MAny MEals Pantry

The Coronavirus has changed everything, from Sunday worship services in the sanctuary (now held out-side) to sheltering-in-place and watching a video of the outside service Sunday afternoon (or Monday, or Tuesday...when ever we have time).


Along with a new term in our vocabulary, social distancing, our method of reaching out into the community has been forced to change.


Gone is the Wednesday afternoon Many Meals.  Instead of preparing nearly 500 meals every Wednesday afternoon we now have the Many Meals Pantry.

Spirit of Santa Paula

What a challenging year.  2019 the opening Harvard, a dedicated Homeless Shelter outreach by the Spirit of Santa Paula supporting the homeless of Santa Paula, Fillmore and Piru.


And as 2020 rolled toward spring everything changed.  The Many Meals program which served up to 500 meals on a Wednesday night became the Many Meals Pantry.


As we went into a shutdown and shelter-in-place, for many the economy crashed and the new normal of hungry families and homeless increased.


The need for the Spirit of Santa Paula increased and Kay Bolton and Staff rose to the occasion.
