CHRIST HOUSE SOUP KITCHEN
Our branch provides and serves an evening meal on the 5th Wednesday of the month, usually 4-5 times a year, at the Christ House Soup Kitchen, located on South West Street in Old Town Alexandria. In the past, we have provided pizza purchased with donations from fundraising and members’ contributions. Branch members contributed salad makings, desserts and fruit and prepared and served up to 60 people in two sittings.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions in the last year, we have not been allowed in the soup kitchen building to prepare food or serve food. Therefore, we have had to provide bag meals through a local deli, at an additional cost. The bag meal consists of a sub, chips, fruit, cookie and individual bottles of water provided by our co-chairs. The branch feels strongly about continuing to support those in need in our community during this crisis. We hope to be able to provide and serve food in person in the near future.
