Westside Day

Join us between 11am and 6pm on Thursday, November 12th at either Westside Drive in Location! When you eat during the event, 15% of all sales support returning citizens through the work of our Reentry Conference.

This is a great way to help our community and eat some delicious food! We hope to see you there.

St. Vincent de Paul has always served as the first link for men and women exiting incarceration. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to an even greater role and partnership with the Idaho Department of Correction.

Together, we work to reduce the recidivism rate and create a brighter future for those we serve.
