The annual Dine for the Diner fundraising event to benefit St. Joseph Diner is scheduled for May 19, when you will get your chance to go out to eat for a good cause. The community will be encouraged to end hunger by eating out at participating area restaurants. Dine for the Diner is a opportunity for local restaurants to fill up their tables and for St. Joseph Diner supporters in the community to help feed the hungry.
St. Joseph Diner is a program provided by Catholic Services of Acadiana that provides essential services to people experiencing homelessness in our area. The diner has been helping to feed the hungry in Acadiana since 1983.On average, St. Joseph Diner shares more than 100,000 meals with the hungry each year. In addition to providing a free meal at lunch every day, the diner creates a shared community space where volunteers and staff can engage with patrons – learning their names and their needs to assist them on their journey to self-sufficiency. These services would be impossible without the support of the community and the generosity of the restaurants participating in this event.
