The St. Francis Catholic Kitchen and Jesus Mary Joseph Home mission in Santa Cruz is an expression of the teachings of St. Francis of Assisi, graciously providing food, clothing, shelter, and new opportunities to those in need, with dignity and love. St. Francis Catholic Kitchen operates two programs to care for and uplift the dignity of those in need. One facility contains the soup kitchen program; a second facility is home to the transitional shelter program. To feed the hungry and clothe the naked, St. Francis Catholic Kitchen was founded as a non-profit charity by the late Fr. Peter Carota in 1982.
