Mission: The downtown soup kitchen exists to demonstrate god's heart for the hungry and homeless in anchorage, alaska by providing a full stomach and a hand up.
Programs: The downtown soup kitchen serves a hot lunch and provides showers, laundry and clothing for the homeless and working poor in anchorage. During the year, the feeding program served around 110,000 meals and the shower house provided 4760 showers.
I volunteer at the soup kitchen and 400-500 meals are served daily. In addition to feeding the hungry, shower and laundry facilities as well as clothing are provided. The soup kitchen is currently in the beginning process of providing emergency cold weather women's shelter to fill a desperate need for insufficient beds for the homeless women.
