Maple Alley Cafe

Maple Alley Cafe is a program of the Whatcom County Opportunity Council, which serves people in our community in need of a nourishing meal.

St. Paul's has dozens of parishioners who volunteer in this program and we also provide the kitchen and eating area in the old Parish Hall across the street from the main church. We serve between 15 and 20 people each week. Please join us.

Contact Julia Findley or the church office for more information.


Many thanks to all you kind and generous folks who contributed to getting the wonderful dishwasher installed in the Old Parish Hall! It not only brings some relief to our hard-working folks on the dish line and guarantees sanitation, but the plumbing involved makes the sinks in the OPH compliant with the Whatcom County Health Dept's standard for a commercial kitchen. All good things! And also a big thank you for the generosity and support Maple Alley Cafe receives from all of you. You really have created a warm and welcoming atmosphere for those in need in our community and it seems like a perfect match with the Alms program. We do continue to need eggs, meat and cheese weekly to make the breakfast, and appreciate any donations!

Please consider bringing eggs, sausage, and cheese (or any other good food) to the refrigerator in the kitchen at the church; a section of it is designated for Maple Alley.

Any interested people should contact Rosie Crow, Maple Alley Assistant and Volunteer coordinator at rose_crow@oppco.org, after filling out an on-line Volunteer Application, on the Opportunity Council Website.  Or call Anne Poulson, Maple Alley Coordinator at 739-7335. 

Thanks for your ongoing support and interest!

Thank you so much for your immediate and generous response to our call for supplies for the breakfast at Maple Alley Cafe! The eggs, cheese, sausage, yogurt and salsa are all wonderful donations that help us to put out a healthy and hearty breakfast on Tuesday mornings. Your support is what makes it all work.
