Soup Kitchen

Open 365 days of a year, the Shepherds of Good Hope soup kitchen provides nutritious meals to our community’s homeless and most vulnerable citizens.

In 2016, the soup kitchen served over 350,000 meals, including breakfast and dinner for clients residing in our emergency shelter, a public community lunch, and an evening drop-in.

None of this would be possible without the incredible support we receive from our dedicated volunteers, and the donations of food we receive from local grocery stores, food warehouses, schools, churches, corporations and members of the community.

Need to Access the Soup Kitchen?

Our Soup Kitchen’s Breakfast and Dinner are open to Shelter clients.

Our Community Lunch is open daily from 11:30am until 12:30pm at 233 Murray Street. All are welcome.
