St. Ben's Meals

Our Parish Helps

St. Ben’s Community Meal site serves a hot, home-made dinner six nights a week, Sunday to Friday, 5:15 – 6:30 pm. Over 90,000 meals are served each year. All are welcome and are considered family in a community that shares a warm, safe environment.

      How Does Our Parish Help?

On the 3rd & 4th Thursdays of Every Month, we gather to wash donated potatoes and then deliver them for baking.

On the 3rd & 4th Fridays of Every Month, we collect and prepare food donations of desserts, meatloaves, hard-boiled eggs, and sour cream to deliver and help serve that evening to St. Ben's in Milwaukee.

For specific dates, please reference the weekly calendar in our parish bulletin.

Volunteers are always needed and welcome!

Crossroads Kitchen Meal Program


How does MPH help?

Mother of Perpetual Help’s  St. Vincent De Paul Conference participates by creating and serving meals. We supply six 10x21 large casseroles and fourteen 5-quart buckets of Jell-O to the Cross Roads Kitchen (South) site and serve these meals.  

MPH is now functioning well in making the casseroles and Jell-O. 

(We may need about two persons to be backups for making ham casseroles).  

Please consider volunteering to serve.
