Cathedral Kitchen

Our Mission

Cathedral Kitchen provides hot meals to the poor and hungry of Camden and beyond. Its meal program provides prepared meals Monday - Friday (dinner) and Saturday (lunch) to hundreds of guests each day. Since 2009, Cathedral Kitchen has operated a culinary arts training program to help prepare students for a career in food services. CMSRU students are called on a few evenings of each month to help seat guests, plate and serve meals to tables, and clean up after the service is finished. The opportunity allows students to meet and interact with the program's guests, most of whom are homeless, welfare recipients, disabled or the working poor.
