New Program to feed the hungry near st. james park
In July 2019, Opening Doors 2020 launched a new lunch program in downtown San José for the hungry individuals that frequent St. James Park. The lunch program offered on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, will provide healthy nutritious meals at the African American Community Services Agency, located at 304 North 6th Street. Meals will be provided indoors, in a safe and centralized location that is adjacent to St. James Park, with access to basic needs and other safety net resources.
This new lunch program will need volunteers and volunteer organizations, especially groups, students, faith-based organizations, clubs, corporations, and other nonprofits who currently provide meals in St. James Park.
