Feeding San Antonio’s Homeless Community. Since 1974, St. Vincent de Paul has addressed the plight of the homeless who live on the streets and the working poor. Originally located at the SAMM Shelter, we moved our operation to the Courtyard at the Haven for Hope campus.
In 2010, St Vinnys Bistro® was created specifically to provide three hot, nutritional meals each day, 365 days a year in the Courtyard at Haven for Hope, serving an average of 1,100 to 1,400 meals per day. In addition, sack lunches are provided for those who work in the community and medicinal meals are provided for those who need to take their medication with food.
In 2020, St Vinnys Bistro was established as a separate 501(c)3 with the purpose that is consistent with the Rule and Mission of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul as well as with the Mission of the Member of any upper council with which it is affiliated. Download our 501(c)3 certificate here.
We rely heavily on volunteers to help us meet our goals and ensure that all those we serve are treated with dignity and compassion. We partner with dedicated organizations and individuals who donate their time, food or treasure.
