JOY Soup Kitchen was formed when Frances White, the director of the original Greenville  Soup Kitchen, serving at The Mount Hermon Lodge, decided to retire. It was then that The Greenville Soup Kitchen joined forces with Barbara Taft and Jean Dawson who were serving meals at York Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church in west Greenville. Nancy Singleton suggested the name of Jesus Others and You.  In 1995, we moved to the JOY Community Building  at 700 Albemarle Avenue.

The Mission of Jesus, Others & You Inc is to establish, organize, operate and promote facilities and services in Pitt County for the benefit of the poor and other persons in need of such services necessary to feed, treat, educate, enrich, tutor, counsel, refer or rehabilitate them for the betterment of our community.

Please feel free to join us for a meal, fellowship or to volunteer.  And please be sure to tell others about our mission to serve those in our community who may be less fortunate than we are.
