The Mooresville Soup Kitchen has been providing hope and hot meals to the Mooresville, North Carolina, community since 1987. The operational soup kitchen serves a hot breakfast on Monday mornings and a hot lunch Monday through Friday. As the soup kitchen continues to grow, collection and distribution of the food has become more challenging.
Mooresville Soup Kitchen’s mission is to provide nourishing meals, fellowship, and encouragement to impoverished families, veterans, homeless, and disabled neighbors who are struggling. With over 450 volunteers, the Mooresville Soup Kitchen is able to serve nearly 150 guests every day. “Our ability to provide food in neighborhoods that are struggling the most allows us to make food accessible for all,” said Mooresville Soup Kitchen Executive Director Lara Ingram.
In partnership with WoodmenLife North Carolina Chapter 16, Mooresville Soup Kitchen hopes to raise $20,000 through RedBasket.org to purchase a 2017 Chevrolet Express van. “We have drivers that will drive this van to pick up and distribute bread, produce, and meat to help feed our needy people in our area,” Lara said.
