Monetary donations are an especially effective gift. We are able to purchase food supplies from the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina for pennies on the dollar.  Thank You for Your Support!

The Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen operates thanks to the giving spirit and hard work of numerous volunteer crews from local churches, businesses, and individuals willing to share their skills and free time.

YOU can help by:

- Joining a cooking and serving crew

- Initiating a food drive for a needed item

- Using your pickup to gather supplies

- Helping sort food donations from the Boy Scouts or US Post Office
