New Location, Leads
Mother's Kitchen
Seattle Mother's Kitchen has moved to a new location to the Frederick Ozanam House, also known as the Oz House. The Oz House is located downtown on First Hill, at 801, 9th Ave., Seattle, WA 98104 (Map).
A nutritious, hot breakfast is prepared the second Sunday of each month, teaming up with Operation Sack Lunch. Volunteers meet around 9:00 am either outside the building or inside the kitchen. Food preparation is from 9:00-11:00 am. Then meals are served from 11:00 am-noon at the Oz House, and also at an outdoor parking lot a few blocks away, underneath I-5.
Many thanks to all the devotees for enthusiastically leading Mother’s Kitchen for almost 20 years at the old location (The Compass Center), as well as for the continued service! The new co-leads are Dharmaja and Jayanti. If you are interested in participating, please text or call Dharmaja at 828-738-2662.
