Orange Rotary Club Members Volunteering at Mary's Kitchen

In 1984, 82 year-old Mary McAnena helped a homeless woman in Hart Park, Orange, California. This was the beginning of Mary's Kitchen.  Mary's home became the scene - volunteers helped with the cooking, transported the food to Hart Park and served the men, women and children who were homeless and in need. In 1994 the Kitchen moved to 517 West Struck in Orange, California. In 1995 the St. Joseph Health System Foundation granted the Kitchen the funds to buy modular buildings. Mary's Kitchen had a permanent home.

Community Service Projects

Once described as the “heartbeat of Rotary,” Community Service is a multi-pronged effort to improve the quality of life close to home. Rotarians have long been making substantial and lasting contributions to their communities. To a large extent, Rotary’s reputation is built on the Community Service projects undertaken by Rotarians.
