Preble Street Volunteers Fight Hunger

November 25, 2019

Thanks to thousands of incredible volunteers who join us at three Preble Street Soup Kitchens, we served 630,000 meals to our neighbors in need over the last year! In 47,389 volunteer hours, those helping hands:


  • Chopped 36,400 potatoes
  • Diced 18,200 onions
  • Boiled 3,640 gallons of water for pasta and rice
  • Fried 44,925 eggs
  • Grilled 50,000 pancakes
  • Sliced 40,000 loaves of bread
  • Washed 980,000 pieces of silverware

And everyone got fed.
