JOY Soup Kitchen needs to raise $35,000 by year end so that we can continue helping those in need. Without this money, the kitchen will be unable to meet its financial obligations. JOY Soup Kitchen’s primary focus is to deal with food insecurity among the poor and homeless in the Greenville community.  We are the only place in Greenville that prepares and serves a free, midday meal to address this essential need. For some people, this is the only meal of the day. On average, we serve around 25,000 free meals per year.  Each meal costs $2, so a little can go a long way.

Because we are a non-profit, please feel free to select Other for the “tip” and pay $0.  Otherwise, the tip is added to your donation and helps GoFundMe to support their site.

We are no longer able to take donated clothes. Please take them to Community Crossroads Center at 207 Manhattan Ave. Or to the Salvation Army at 2718 South Memorial Drive.

If you prefer to pay by check, they can be mailed to:
