What started out as a simple idea placed on my heart, has turned into something I don't think anyone of us realized would happen. It was cold out and shelters were full. The idea of warm hands and warm hearts was placed on my heart. I didn't know what it looked like at the time but after some thought the Pop Up Soup Kitchen evolved. There were two of us with an idea that shared our vision to others and it just caught on. Consistency was the key. With the homeless population a trust had to be built in order for this idea to work. Every second Sunday we would meet in the back corner of the Whalley Legion. Friends and friends of friends started bringing Crock Pots of hot food. Our first week we fed maybe 50 people and now a few months later we are feeding well over a hundred each time. The Pop Up Soup Kitchen wasn't about feeding the MOST people... it is about feeding as many as we can healthy and great quality food. Food that you would serve your own family and the ones you love. No day olds. Everyone deserves to be served delicious and healthy food that nourishes not only the body but nourishes the mind. We want them to know that someone loves and cares. And in this food that is prepared it is obvious. We have now served well over 1000 people. We have amazing people on board. A team that keeps growing. Pop Up Soup Kitchen is for everyone! If u can't cook then serve. If u can't make it out u can sponsor a pot! You can donate spoons and bowls! You can make a pot and we will pick it up and drop it off! You can make a donation here and it will be used to buy food or other supplies integral to making this such a success. We run on donations alone and our members cover the cost of food out of their own pockets. So! If u own a business and can help us in any way please let us know!
