Security Service Charitable Foundation donates $5,000 to St. Vincent de Paul’s Soup Kitchen
SAN ANTONIO, TX (January 20, 2021) — In an effort to help address increasing food insecurity in Utah, the Security Service Charitable Foundation has partnered with St. Vincent de Paul’s Soup Kitchen. Through a $5,000 donation, the foundation will provide protective equipment for staff as well as packaging for to-go meals and shelf-stable food items since the organization has shifted to a to-go meal format during COVID-19.
“St. Vincent De Paul’s Soup Kitchen provides the only regular mid-day and evening meal service in Salt Lake County,” said Andrew Robinson, grants manager for Catholic Community Services of Utah–St. Vincent De Paul Soup Kitchen. “The Security Service Charitable Foundation donation is allowing us to continue operating with enhanced safety precautions during COVID-19, ensuring that anyone who is hungry receives a meal regardless of age, religion, or other personal circumstance.”
St. Vincent De Paul has been providing meals to those who are hungry in Utah for the past 51 years. On average their dining hall serves 1,000 meals a day with more than 1,000 additional meals distributed to resource centers throughout the city.
“We’ve seen a striking need in Utah which has been ranked the fourth-highest state in the country for food insecurity,” said Ben Wiseman senior vice president of member service—Mountain West Region for Security Service Federal Credit Union. “It is our pleasure to assist St. Vincent de Paul’s Soup Kitchen as they work daily to provide critical meals for families in need.”
The Security Service Charitable Foundation helps further Security Service Federal Credit Union’s corporate goal of community service by contributing to deserving organizations and causes in the credit union’s market areas.
Staff and volunteers prepare meals for those in need while practicing enhanced safety precautions due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
