Dorothy's Place Hospitality Center and Kitchen. As the largest congregate meal program
on California's Central Coast, the Franciscan Workers who run Dorothy's Place have been
joined by scores of foundations and grant making bodies, invidual volunteers, faith
congregations, civic groups and students who have generously donated their time, food and funds
to make Dorothy's Kitchen and Hospitality Center a bright, friendly and hospitable oasis
for the men, women, and children who are our guests.
SEVEN DAYS A WEEK, every day of the year, Dorothy's Kitchen offers
breakfast and lunch to anyone and everyone. Milk, bread, and canned goods
are also given along with smiles, respect, and unconditional love. With
the help of donors, community volunteers, local churches, temples, schools
and organizations, Dorothy's Kitchen ia a place of grace, friendship, and
Dorothy's Place Health Care Clinic compliments the other services offered at
the Hospitality Center by providing on-site availability of medical services.
Volunteer doctors, nurses, and students from Hartnell College nursing program staff

opening in August of 1996.
