COVID-19 Response

COVID-19 Update

Mary's Kitchen remained open during the pandemic and continues to serve the homeless community. We are fully committed to the safety of all volunteers and the community that would otherwise have nowhere to turn. Insecurity soared during the pandemic and the number of our homeless population was left with nowhere to turn. It is clear that, COVID-19, its variants, exposed weaknesses in food services around the world and here in California particularly Orange County. Mary's Kitchen transformed every aspect of our food services to meet the challenges. Clearly, the crisis underlined how important investing in organizations providing food security for so many in need. 

We've taken preventative measures as per CDC guidelines. As a result, there have been zero cases at our facility. Updates will continue to be posted as it becomes available. We are currently not offering vaccine shots availability through our medical resource partners at the Struck location. For vaccination sites and information please visit the California Department of Public Health "My Turn" Center.


Orange Partners Surgicenter at 438 east Katella Ave #D Orange, CA 92867 offers a free walk-in booster clinic Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday's.
