Soup Kitchen

Food Servers

Our Soup Kitchen is open every day and has not missed a night in 35 years. Community groups and faith organizations serve food to clients each night with 8-12 volunteers. We have also launched a pilot program The Soup Kitchen Network, which is a second meal site that rotates between churches. As we expand, we need more volunteer groups to fill this second site.

We are currently looking for groups interested in volunteering to serve at our remote sites. If you are interested in your group serving, contact Lynn Kancian at kancianl@shalomcenter.org or (262) 658-1713 Ext. 104 for more information
