All one needs to do is walk through a soup kitchen, any soup kitchen, front to back. Instantly, you will discover that the workforce is made-up of nearly all volunteers. Now, there is some paid staff - but the majority is a steady stream of good-hearted people who care about the work, the need, and the people who benefit.
The average meal for someone eating at a soup kitchen costs a little less than $2.50.
Using this number, a $25 contribution can sponsor a meal for 10 people, a $50 contribution for 20, and a $100 contribution for 40 people. Each one of these contributions will make a difference.
Running a nonprofit is very much like managing a small business. It requires resources. At Soup Kitchen 411, we pride ourselves on being good stewards of our donor's money. More than 90% of our funding goes directly to carrying out our mission, a feat that we are quite proud of.
Whether you are an individual donor, foundation, small business or corporation, your donation goes directly to defining hunger, connecting volunteers with soup kitchens, raising awareness, and dispelling the myths surrounding soup kitchens.
We appreciate your support - but more than anything, we don’t just want you to write a check. We want you to get involved.
