The Holy Grill of St Nicholas
Feeding Bodies and Souls
A 501c3 Food Truck that feeds the homeless, nutritional, fresh and delicious meals.
St. Nicholas Episcopal Church has long cared for the homeless. For over 20 years St. Nicholas has supported St. Laurence Chapel – A Day Shelter for the Homeless. In addition to monetary donations, each week parishioners deliver over 100 hard-boiled eggs (an easily transportable source of protein) to St. Laurence. On the first Sunday of every month, St. Nicholas collects new men’s and female underwear to be distributed through St. Laurence. On the fourth Sunday of every month, St. Nicholas celebrates the Eucharist and serves a hot meal at St. Laurence. In addition, St. Nicholas provides direct aid to the homeless by supplying clothing from our Thrift Shop and through the Priest’s Discretionary Account.
Since launching the Holy Grill mobile feeding ministry for the homeless and working poor in September 2016, we've always served a hot, spirit-lifting breakfast in the parking lot of St. Martin's Episcopal Church every Wednesday morning. Unfortunately, we've been asked to limit our visits to every other week, so we are looking for an alternative location at which we can serve breakfast every other Wednesday. Please help us find a church or other organization that will allow us to be on-site for approximate 90-120 minutes.

From our ministry's inception in September 2016, the Holy Grill mobile feeding ministry for the homeless, working poor, and recently unemployed began by serving a hot, spirit-lifting breakfast in the parking lot of St. Martin's Episcopal Church every Wednesday morning. Many whom we served slept under the nearby bridges. St. Martin has since sold their physical plant. Now we will serve hot, spirit-lifting breakfast and dinner meals every Wednesday at St. Stephen Evangelical Lutheran Church in Pompano Beach. On Thursdays we also serve breakfast at Parkway United Methodist Church. We continue to serve meals during the COVID-19 pandemic, albeit with special health and safety protocols and a more limited crew of volunteers.
Going outside the walls of the church and beyond the boundaries of fixed sites, to serve hot, spirit-lifting meals to the homeless and working poor, feeding bodies and souls, while also ready to assist first responders and victims of natural disasters.
