Mission: Our mission is to provide food for those who are in need and to empower them through our partnership with other community and social agencies to take control of their lives and improve their life situation.

This Soup Kitchen has been in the community for many years and has touched the lives of so many. They turn no one down - no questions asked - you are a child of God and you are welcome in your father's house! Wonderful program - can not say enough about the volunteers and church members who give their time to run this program.
