San Jose, California – Martha’s Kitchen is pleased to add the Omidi brothers, Michael Omidi and Julian Omidi, and their non-profit No More Poverty (nmp.org) to its long list of supporters. The “no questions asked” soup kitchen, run out of Sacred Heart Church, is on target this year to serve 250,000 hot meals to the needy men, women, and children of the area.
“Poverty and hunger are prevalent throughout our country, in fact the needs are growing as the current recession persists,” says Edita Crruz of Martha’s Kitchen. “Thank you No More Poverty for helping us continue to feed the families and children of our area. A warm meal in the belly, served with compassion and a smiling face … it means so much to those in the midst of the struggle. ”

About Martha’s Kitchen
In 2011, Martha’s Kitchen (marthas-kitchen.org) celebrated its 30th anniversary and also marked the serving of its 2,000,000 meal. Its well-known mission is to “feed the hungry with dignity, no questions asked, no judgment made”. Today, they tell of seeing and serving more families as the nation’s high unemployment rate makes family situations more dire. A landmark study recently released by Feeding America reports that more than 37 million people – or one in eight Americans – receive food each year through the national network of food banks and kitchens. The kitchen is named after Martha, from the Bible’s New Testament, who unfailingly offered hot meals to Jesus and his band of followers on their frequent journeys.
