About the Soup Kitchen

The Soup Kitchen is a program of the 9-10 Club Serving Soup to the Hungry Society. The society is a registered non-profit, non-denominational charity. We serve breakfast Monday to Friday: no one is turned away and no one leaves hungry.

The Soup Kitchen has operated regularly since 1982. It is the oldest, completely volunteer-run food resource for the hungry in Victoria. About 100 volunteers, with the exception of a caretaker who receives a modest honorarium, staff the kitchen. A board of directors meets monthly and oversees operations. The annual budget is currently about $80,000. St. Andrew’s Cathedral has been our landlord since we began and generously provides space for minimal rent. We invite you to support the society as a member, as a donor, as a volunteer—or all three!  More on the history of the 9-10 Club…
