Kinship Community Food Center

Goal of Program

The Mission Internship at Kinship Community Food Center provides an opportunity for young people to give a dedicated time to community, prayer, service, and formation. Mission interns live a life of daily prayer, rooted in a personal relationship with Christ and Catholic tradition, grow in leadership and career development as they support non-profit community work, run food center and urban farm operations and programming, and find a place of belonging as they live within the neighborhoods they serve. Missionaries live life together in separate men and women’s homes that foster faith, vulnerability, personal growth, and deeper friendship. Following the example of Christ who specially loves the poor, missionaries study Catholic Social Teaching and seek to build relationships with those on the margins of society. As missionaries grow in communal life, daily prayer, service, and simple-living, not only are their lives transformed but the love they receive extends to the larger neighborhood and church community.
