Sevika Sangham members preparing meals for Mary's Kitchen, a non-profit food and service center for the homeless in the city of Orange. It was founded by 82 year old Mary McAnena in 1984, who found her calling when she was helping the homeless at a park in Orange. Mary's Kitchen was created and moved to its current location 10 years later. Unfortunately Mary's Kitchen is being forced to move by June 10th and is struggling to find a new location to continue its outreach to serve the homeless that it has done for almost 30 years.
