In the early 1980’s, there were no organizations in Victoria dedicated to feeding the hungry. 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 Friday, November 12th, 1982. From six clients on opening day, The Soup Kitchen now serves between 150-300 clients a day.
The Soup Kitchen is located in the basement of St. Andrew’s Cathedral, 740 View Street, and is open from 8:30 to 10:00 AM Monday to Friday, all holidays except Christmas Day.
