New Horizons soup kitchen has been feeding those in need since 1979.
The New Horizons soup kitchen was the first component to New Horizons expansive services. The soup kitchen began as a group of concerned citizens making soup and sandwiches at their homes and then serving them from a borrowed camper that would go to those impoverished people in need of nutrition.
The soup kitchen is now a place where those in need, whose paths in life have met with devastating financial circumstances and the homeless come to receive a hot meal, encouragement and companionship in a place where they are treated with dignity and respect. It serves much more than soup. Dinner always includes a robust salad, entree, sides, dessert and choice of milk, coffee and soft drinks.
The soup kitchen serves breakfast for shelter guests daily. It also serves a complete dinner to seniors (over 50) at 3:00 p.m. and for individuals, and their families beginning at 4:30 daily. The soup kitchen typically serves over 200 meals daily.
In 2016 a partnership was formed with Families in Transition's Family Place Resource Center and Shelter. New Horizons will be staffing and running their kitchen which provides dinner seven days per week.
Volunteer at the Soup Kitchen
Volunteers help to prepare meals each day. Teams or groups of people also volunteer to serve dinner each evening. This is a great way for coworkers and community groups to get together and do something to help the community.
