The Benton Harbor Soup Kitchen would like to give a big thanks to our sponsoring Organizations and Volunteers. Without you we would not exist.

Most of the days at the Soup Kitchen in Benton Harbor are staffed by churches and a few 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. It sounds like a lot of work, but volunteers arrive between 9 and 9:30a.m. and finish shortly after 1 p.m.
