Nourishing Those in Need
The Lehigh Conference of Churches’ Ecumenical Soup Kitchen in center city Allentown serves more than 35,000 meals a year and provides access to medical care for those in need.
Since 1982, we’ve partnered with Catholic Charities to ensure that the working poor, homeless, elderly, children, those between jobs, individuals on fixed incomes, and those who have nowhere else to turn receive at least one hot, nutritious meal every day of the week. The LCC’s kitchen operates three days a week; Catholic Charities’, four.
Medical care is made available on a weekly basis by the LVHN Street Medicine Team and Sacred Heart Parish Nurses, who offer free screenings, referrals for follow up care, and assistance with health insurance enrollment.
