The Mooresville Soup Kitchen is a non-profit organization. To provide our neighbors
with food, we receive donations from outside sources. Our largest donation that comes in twice a week is from Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina (SHFBM). They provide distribution warehouses and branches that supply food and grocery items to over 650 partner agencies. 18.4% of Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina’s service area populations lives in poverty, including almost 220,000 children and seniors. In 2013-2014, SHFBM has distributed 45 million pounds of food and other essential grocery items throughout 19 county service regions. We are one of them! Second Harvest does an amazing job with providing donations to help supply non-profits like us!

Fundamentals of Food Service is Coming Soon!

The MSK family is excited to announce that our first class of Fundamentals of Food Service culinary trainees will kick off their 12 week job skills program on 4/30/2018!  We were blessed with funding to support this new program from both Williamson's Chapel United Methodist Church and Davidson United Methodist Church.  We are so thankful for the support of these two partners and for their dedication to help support this program with talented volunteers.  Here's how you can get involved in this program:

  • Get the word out to your churches, neighbors, and friends that we are taking applications for trainees for this session and future sessions.  Either visit our website to fill out an online application or visit MSK to get a paper application.  There will be 4 to 5 trainees per session.
  • Contact Judith Thomas if you would like to become a volunteer trainer to assist Chef Jim in the kitchen or teach other auxillary sessions such as time management, interviewing, resume writing, restaurant management, etc.

We can't wait to see how we can support our neighbors on their journey with this new program!


March is National Nutrition Month!!!

MSK is focused on helping our guests making healthy choices in our food pantry and in our hot meals.  We offer a healthy balanced meal each day for lunch and offer fruits, vegetables, and meat to our pantry guests.  MSK also offers recipes to our guests for uncommon foods so that they become more comfortable and are willing to try new things!  In our two new programs this year we will be teaching cooking skills in our kitchen with a focus on healthy choices and nutrition as well.
