Since 1987, we have been providing hope and hot meals to those in need in Mooresville and the surrounding areas. 

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide nourishing meals, fellowship, and encouragement to those in need. At the Mooresville Soup Kitchen and out in the greater community, we serve veterans, at-risk youth, the homeless, victims of domestic violence, senior citizens, and the working poor.  

What We Do

Since being founded in 1987, the Mooresville Soup Kitchen has been a place of acceptance and compassion. We do not receive or administer government funds. Therefore, we do not require our guests to present identification or qualify for our services. Everyone is welcome at the Soup Kitchen. We are a family and not an agency.

Our mission inside the walls of the Soup Kitchen was expanded out into the community in 2013 with the launch of the MSK Markets, serving more of our neighbors in need than just the 200 we serve lunch each day.

As a faith-based, non-profit organization, we depend on the generosity of our community to fulfill our mission.  We have been blessed and are grateful to be able to impact our community more than ever before.

“For I was hungry you gave me bread, I was thirsty you gave me drink, I was a stranger you took me in.”
— Matthew 25:35
