We've loved every minute of our journey
DeaconChef, Inc. was born August 2014, as an awakening from God; our Founder and CEO, William Scipio, Jr. was given the vision to impact the homeless community in Baltimore, Maryland, by providing home-cooked meals that not only fed the natural man but their spirits' as well. The ministries first act of service provided breakfast, lunch and dinner to a community of homeless individuals who lived in tents under the bridge that connects Martin Luther King Blvd and Franklin St. in Baltimore, MD. From this point DeaconChef continued to prepared weekly meals to the community, with the added benefit of the homeless community placing special request for meals, that helped to cater to their dietary needs. Since this time, God's vision elevated DeaconChef Inc., and we have been blessed to continue to feed the community at 120 N. Front Street every third Saturday of each month. Preparing meals that feed well over 250 individuals each time. Our "Unity in the Community Days" have flourished with volunteers, donations and support from friends, family and the community of Baltimore.
