    Community Christian Church in Morgan Hill serves free hot dinners every Thursday from 6pm to 7pm
    We are located on West Main Street, Morgan Hill
    No requirements – Open to all

  2. Christine says:

    Do any of these sites accept home baked donations such as breads, muffins, etc?

    • Anonymous says:

      Soup kitchens accept SANITARY FOODS: 1. Fresh, 2. Canned, 3. Bottled.
      Feeding a hungry public is nice, as well as tasting variety.

      FOOD SANITATION IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT; FDA Guidelines on Kitchen and Food Safety are available in most Public Libraries SO ILLNESS OR INFECTION FROM WHAT YOU EAT IS GREATLY REDUCED!

      MY two cents. :o)

  3. jimbo carrol says:

    Where can I donate my culinary skills this Xmas? I’m a chef!

  4. Tonya Hunter says:

    My family and I would like to volunteer to prepare and/or serve food on Christmas Day. Please contact me at 408-712-8607. Thank you.

    Let us know who replies to this……I would like to give a special thanks..

  6. Inn Vision in San Jose cancelled their Breakfast to the Homeless who are not residents in 2013. The free Saturday morning breakfast food expense and preparation is done by a Catholic group at no cost to Innvision.
