Our mission is to feed the hungry. With the assistance, cooperation and support of many people, we meet our mission – it is heartwarming to hear of the many untold success stories of people being in need and getting back on their feet after experiencing the TLC we dole out in full measure. Our church teams come every month on ‘their’ day and the kitchen echoes as they prepare the menu for the day and catch up on the latest news of their parish and the community at large. Much love and joy and laughter goes into each and every meal.
The staff of the Emergency Shelter have been so generous with their time. It is a great partnership and we help each other as much as we can. They help us keep everyone happy in the dining room as well as cleaning and mopping our floors every day.
Our staff is a joy to work with. They keep the kitchen rolling, look after all the food donations and assist the teams. Their loyalty is very evident as they help each other as well.
Our Executive Director is a critical part of meeting our mission. It is with the good graces, love and wisdom of Joyce Crittenden, that the Lethbridge Soup Kitchen has become a haven for those in need.
The soup kitchen has a Board of Directors, many long-standing members who help to keep everything running. They are the folks who search for fundraising ideas, who find solutions to problems and who help to ensure that the doors open each day.
