The Shoreline Soup Kitchens & Pantries is an interfaith service that provides food and fellowship to those in need and educates our community on hunger and poverty.


We provide enough food for over 1 million meals each year.  This includes home-style meals served each day at one of our 8 meal sites, and groceries are available each week at one of our 5 food pantries.  We are an interfaith ministry, with all locations hosted by faith communities.

Note:  Volunteer meetings are suspended at this time.
