St. Francis Inn

The Inn has been serving meals to the neediest individuals and families in Philadelphia since 1979. We opened our doors in December of 1979 and have served a meal every day since then. A breakfast of hot or cold cereal or pastries is served three days a week, while we serve a sit-down meal in our dining room every day. We now serve over 350 meals a day with dignity and respect. Our meal is unique because we serve our meals restaurant-style; our guests don’t walk through a line to get their food, our compassionate volunteers serve them at their tables.We rely on the generosity of local grocery stores and businesses as well as churches and individuals to donate food so we can serve our daily meals. Volunteers come daily to help cook, serve and clean. With the help and support of volunteers and benefactors we are able to serve our guests every day with a warm, nourishing meal in a caring and respectful setting.

In addition to the dine-in meals, we also provide food baskets for families and homebound seniors monthly. A mixture of fresh and non-perishable foods supply regular sustenance to those unable to come to our meals. Mail services, phone usage, and many intangible resources also support our guests.
