Dinner At Vinny's
From 5- 6 pm every night of the year, Dinner at Vinny’s serves free and nutritious stew and sandwich meals to Salt Lake’s hungry persons at the St. Vincent DePaul Dining Hall at 200 S. 400 W. in Salt Lake City. An average of 700 meals are served nightly! This number has risen steadily in the last year and a half. Volunteer groups provide and serve ready-made sandwiches. Dinner at Vinny’s is operated in partnership with Catholic Community Services of Utah and is funded through community donations.
Through dinneratvinnys.org they are selling $50 shares. It takes about one minute to go on-line, click on the ‘donate’ button and purchase a share. 100% of share and donation dollars go directly to providing meals. Fundraising expenses for the campaign are donated separately. It costs approximately $2,459 a night… to serve 700 meals or 65 cents per meal. A $50 share purchase will now purchase about 57 meals!
