The Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen is made possible by the contributions of our sponsoring Organizations and Volunteers. Without you, The Soup Kitchen would not exist.

The Soup Kitchen in Benton Harbor is staffed by volunteers from churches or businesses. Most groups donate the food for their day at the Soup Kitchen. They also cook, serve and help with light clean-up in the kitchen.

Our Wish List

     ITEMS we need:
Ground Coffee
Disposable plastic or latex kitchen gloves
Cleaning cloths — bar mops or microfiber cloths
#10 cans of green beans, corn, or baked beans

If you have food on hand, we can take it if it has not expired or been opened. Please don’t buy food for us. We can buy food cheaper than you can, and we will buy much larger cans. Why? We have to open 18 15-oz cans to serve 100 people, but only 4 if they are #10 cans. We are happy to take game meats, but they must be processed by a licensed processor.

  • We accept donations from 9 AM-1 PM. Call for other times.
  • Do not leave food outside our delivery door. Anything left outside must be discarded.
    Our delivery door is by the driveway off Oak Street. Click here to go to the map on our contact page.
