Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen

Founded in 1986 by a coordinating committee of two Catholic laywomen, two brothers and a priest from the Oratory in Rock Hill, South Carolina- the Soup Kitchen was named after Dorothy Day who founded "Houses of Hospitality". She recognized that though people were eager to help the deserving poor, many people were still left wanting.

From it's beginning, the soup kitchen's mission embodied that spirit. It provides a safe comfortable place and a free hot meal to whomever walks through the door. No Questions Asked!  ​We do however track the number of meals served daily in order to receive food supplies from Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina.

As an independent charitable organization, the Soup Kitchen supporters are an ecumenical and eclectic hodgepodge of churches, businesses, civic groups, school groups, students and professionals

Serving Rock Hill & York County Residents since 1986

The Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen isn't just about filling stomachs; we are also committed to making people feel comfortable and welcomed. Dorothy Day insisted that the people she served were treated as "guests", and we have faithfully followed her lead.

The Soup Kitchen guests have formed a community with each other-  eagerly greeting their friends and helping older guests by carrying their food.
