Three meals are served each and every day to homeless and low-income women and youth at two Preble Street Soup Kitchens, which operate at the Teen Center and Florence House.
There is no easy way to eliminate hunger in the world or in our neighborhood. None of us alone can do it. But we are all part of the solution.
While the purpose of the Soup Kitchens is to provide a nutritious meal, they are also an important entry point to services for individuals who are homeless or living in poverty.
Both soup kitchens are co-located with Preble Street programs, and caseworkers and outreach workers from collaborating organizations meet and engage with people in need of services. They are also within easy proximity of most community resources, facilitating access to a range of services from employment to housing to health care that may help clients escape the cycle of hunger and homelessness.
