Mother Marianne’s West Side Kitchen | 702 Columbia St., Utica, NY
Feeding our hungry neighbors

Saint Mother Marianne Cope grew up in West Utica and went on
to devote the last 30 years of her life to the lepers of Hawaii's Molokai.

Now her name embraces hospitality to those in need in her home town, with
a soup kitchen at St. Joseph-St. Patrick Parish Center at 702 Columbia Street, Utica, NY.

Mother Marianne's West Side Kitchen serves hot lunches from 11:30 to 12:30
Monday through Friday, and a bag lunch on Saturday and Sunday.
