Since 1982 – 40 Years of Service in Victoria

In the early 1980’s, there were no organizations in Victoria dedicated to feeding those in need.  After watching two men searching for food in a dumpster, Murray and Edna Black decided to form the 9-10 Club Serving Soup to the Hungry.  Meal services started on November 12, 1982.  It is the oldest, volunteer-run free food resource in Victoria. Daily meals were given out to 30,000 guests in 2021.

The Society is a registered non-profit, non-denominational charity. It is  located in the basement of St. Andrew’s Cathedral, 740 View Street, Victoria and is open Monday to Friday, including all holidays.

The Soup Kitchen celebrates diversity and is committed to a culture of inclusiveness and respect.  This extends to our guests, volunteers, business and community partners. 


The Soup Kitchen feeds those in need.

After 40 years, the 9-10 Club Soup Kitchen has remained true to its founders, Murray and Edna Black.
