Bloomington, IL needs Soup Kitchen Volunteers


Making sure that the homeless in our community receive basic nutrition is incredibly important to their health and well-being. Soup kitchens create a connection between the homeless population and HSHM. Our ministries always begin with meeting an essential need for the disadvantaged in Bloomington-Normal. By welcoming in those at risk, we can start relationships and conversations to find out what other services would be beneficial to them. 

Being a soup kitchen volunteer in Bloomington, IL can warm the hearts and stomachs of those who simply do not have the resources to make a meal. We need your support as a community member to accomplish this task!
