Meal Program

St. Vincent de Paul Waukesha County partners with the Hope Center in providing financial support and staffing to serve a nutritious hot meal each Monday evening to the homeless, indigent, and the needy in the City of Waukesha. Vincentian members and their volunteers serve as volunteers.

If you would like to volunteer for the Monday Evening Meal Program, contact your closest Catholic Church and ask to speak to a St. Vincent de Paul member to learn how to get involved. 

Other organizations provide evening meals at the Hope Center on Wednesdays and Fridays.
