St. Mark's Church cooks up free meal program this Saturday

091519 Community Kitchen 6

Bethany Markee, a food industry professional, was recently hired by St. Mark's to help design and organize their community kitchen programs.

To support local residents in need during the current health crisis, St. Mark's-in-the-Valley Episcopal Church announced that it will offer a day of cost-free meals for delivery to seniors and pick up for those of all ages, this Saturday, March 28 from 9 a.m. to noon. 

Several local food purveyors and chefs, including Chef Bethany Markee, Chef Jake O. Francis and Amy Gard’ner Francis of Valley Piggery Catering, and Amy Dixon of Baker’s Table, will gather to prepare simple, professionally-made meals from the SYV Community Kitchen at St. Mark’s-in-the-Valley in Los Olivos. Vegetarian options also will be available.

The Church said social distancing will be observed for both pick-up and meal delivery scenarios to avoid person-to-person contact. To arrange food delivery, local seniors are asked to call and leave a message at 805-688-4454. 

Meal pickups are at St. Mark's, located at 2901 Nojoqui Ave., on the corner of Alamo Pintado Avenue in Los Olivos.

Other event contributors include Pam Gnekow of Buellton Senior Center, Amy Derryberry of Veggie Rescue, Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, Susan Jorgensen and Alice Gillaroo, God’s Country Provisions and the Ollenburgers, and all supporters of the SYV Community Kitchen.
