Our Approach

Bluffton Community Soup Kitchen was established in 2011 to prepare home cooked hot meals for the elderly, sick, shut-in, homeless and poverty members of our community. Due to very limited public transportation, a delivery program was started for clients unable to come to the center for lunch. Clients may receive a hot meal home delivered on Wednesday or come to our center for a To-Go meal every Monday and Wednesday. Clients will find an outdoor Food Pantry Mondays and Thursdays. At the end of our first year in 2011, we delivered/served 500 home cooked hot meals. In 2014, we started an open store walk/in pantry of non-perishable, fresh fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy, desserts and assorted breads every Monday. In 2016, our organization started preparing weekly hot meals for families participating with Family Promise. This program hopes to one day provide shelter for working homeless families with children. We need your help to realize this dream. By the end of 2020 we delivered and offered To-Go 12,148 home cooked hot meals.
