This year marks the 40th anniversary of service for The Soup Kitchen. Each weekday between 8-10am, this non-denominational, volunteer led charity, serves approximately 125 protein rich lunch bags to those in our community. Lunch bags include a sandwich, a hearty nutritious soup, yogurt, baked goodies, two servings of fruit, tea, coffee and water. They also offer their patrons, fresh loaves of bread from Cobs Breads Oak Bay and tubs of peanut butter for take away along with some personal hygiene products (socks, toothbrushes, soap). Being a volunteer led charity means that almost all their funding goes into the lunch bags and packaging to put the lunches together. The Soup Kitchen celebrates diversity and is committed to a culture of kindness, inclusiveness and respect.
