The Soup Kitchen’s $24,000 Campaign Challenge: 4,000 Meals In 40 Days

On November 12, 2022, The Soup Kitchen (aka the 9-10 Club) celebrated 40 years of feeding community.

Each week day, rain or shine, our volunteers serve warm, nutritious meals to seniors, low-income workers, people unhoused and anyone else living at risk in Victoria.

For our 40-years of service, The Soup Kitchen is aiming to raise $24,000 in 40 days. That’s 4,000 meals.

Since 1982 – 40 Years Feeding Community

After watching two men searching for food in a restaurant dumpster, the late Murray Black and his wife Edna wondered how they could help the hungry. Their vision was the start of The Soup Kitchen.

Since 1982, over 1,000,000 meals have filled hungry bellies.

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


The Soup Kitchen feeds those in need.

As an organization we have stayed true to our founders’ values and in our steadfast commitment to our diners. 

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

Current Meal Program

Open 8:00 am to 10:00 am, with soup-to-go meal service. 

Each bag is packed with healthy protein-rich ingredients including hot soup (made fresh every morning), a meat and cheese filled sandwich, yogurt, and a hard-boiled egg. Two fruits, a sweet, bottled water, and hot tea or coffee completes each meal. For many, this will be their primary and only meal of the day.
