Help Out Your Local Soup Kitchen


Are you looking for a way to help out your fellow human? Then look no further than your local soup kitchen. You local soup kitchen makes it possible to feed the needy in this country. Without these establishments thousands of people would literally starve.

A great way to ensure that we help others in this country is to donate either your time and/or food to these establishments.

Our church takes up a weekly collection of non-perishable foods that church members then deliver to various soup kitchens in the area. Our church collects around $1000 to $1500 in food products each and every week and because they handle everything it makes it easy for the entire congregation to participate in.

If you do not belong to a church or an organization such as mine there is no need to worry, you can drop off the food you collect yourself. Here is what I recommend for you to do your part.

Each week when you go grocery shopping, buy a few cans of food that are going to be specifically donated to the soup kitchen. Keep a bag in your house where you will add these cans to. When the bag gets full you can then deliver the food to the soup kitchen yourself.

To find a local soup kitchen in your area you can look in the phone book, call your local government office or do a search online. You are bound to find a few. Once you determine which soup kitchen you are going to donate to give them a call and let them know you are about to go food shopping and would like to pick up a few things for them and find out what they are low on.

As a former volunteer I would love to get a call like that. It would make there life a lot easier.

Now go out and pick up some products. It doesn’t have to be the top of the line items; the important thing here is to donate food so people can eat.

The United States is a great country and it is volunteer programs such as these, where we help out our fellow man that makes it the best country on earth.
