Saint Vincent de Paul Kitchen feeds over a thousand meals a week with the help of Pocono Bike Rental
August 31, 2020 White Haven, PA – This past week from August 24th thru August 28th 2020 Pocono Bike Rental a local outdoor adventure company in the Poconos sponsored over 1,000 meals to help feed the less fortunate in these extremely hard times. Owner of Pocono Bike Rental, Tom Williams states “It is with great pleasure and honor that I usually get to serve the meals on the day I sponsor each month but this year due to COVID-19 Restrictions I cannot volunteer on-site so for the months that I have missed this is the least I can do.”
The “Soup Kitchen” operates every day of the year and is staffed almost entirely by volunteers. It has a free food pantry and clothing bank. Donations of money from businesses like Pocono Bike Rental go to fund their nearly $500,000 annual cost of operations.
Mike Cianciotta, Program Director of the Kitchen states, “We calculated we are still serving an average of 220 meals a day as to-go meals during this covid-19 pandemic so we thank businesses like Tom’s to now help offset our higher costs such as to-go containers and other safety measures.”
