Soup Kitchen

Shalom Center’s Soup Kitchen – Meals That Matter program has volunteers and staff who prepare and serve a complete balanced and nutritious meal to needy children, families and individuals. The kitchen provides a hot meal including soup, entrée, vegetable or potato, choice of sandwich, fruit, desert, milk, juice or coffee. For more than 30 years a daily meal has been served seven days a week, 365 days per year. We currently average 150 guests each evening. There are no eligibility requirements; everyone who attends receives a meal. The soup kitchen is staffed by a full-time soup kitchen manager, part-time soup kitchen supervisors and 50 different volunteer groups that provide 10-12 volunteers per night.
