Hemenway Soup Kitchen
Since 1983, Soup at Six has provided dinner from the basement gym of the Hemenway United Methodist Church, 933 Chicago Ave.
Our Evanston soup kitchen feeds the hungry every Tuesday night at 4:30pm. Some volunteers arrive early, around 12pm to start the cooking. Around 10-20 volunteers arrive around 4pm to serve and clean up.
And remember...we are called Soup at Six, but we serve at 4:30pm! Six community members started the soup kitchen but the meal starts at 4:30.
We prepare enough food to feed the 100 or so people who attend this free weekly dinner.
Soup at Six is an independent, non-sectarian non-profit organization, funded completely from donations and gifts. There is no fancy board to organize fundraisers and no overhead costs. Each penny that is donated goes directly to feed our guests.
The volunteers who prepare the food, led by Erica Hall, are very creative and efficient, stretching their funds to prepare soup, a starch, a couple of fresh salads, an entree dessert and bread every week, as well as a sack lunch for guests to take with them.
