Every day individuals walk through the doors of the Ardmore Soup Kitchen to receive what could be their only hot meal of the day. Keeping those doors open takes a lot of community and volunteer support.
“It always fluctuates,” Rebeca Glaser, Ardmore Soup Kitchen manager, said of donations. “We have a few groups that donate regularly.”
Donated food and supplies are an important part of the Soup Kitchen’s ability to feed individuals in need in the community, which is a fluid but consistent number of individuals. The doors of the soup kitchen open at 6 p.m. and rotates the soups served each month, with every day of the week in a month having the same soup being served.
