We're going green

We’re going green!

As we emerge from the pandemic, Franciscan Charities is exploring ways in which we can make our own small corner of the Earth healthier and more sustainable.  It’s a challenge given the tight budget of a soup kitchen, but we’re taking  intentional steps.

We’re always mindful of waste and have long been adopting recycling practices with our clothing drives and furniture and household goods donations. But now we’re also testing out recyclable, compostable plates, utensils, carry-out boxes and carry bags, like the green ones shown here from our lunch service last Saturday!

Know some products we should try? Have some ideas for us? Want to help with yard cleanups?  Leave a comment here, share this post or visit our website at Franciscancharitiesinc.org.

Happy Earth Day!
