Bristol Lodge Soup Kitchen

Throughout the pandemic we have been especially grateful to our Bristol Lodge Coordinator, Denise, and the small group of parishioners who have dedicated themselves to providing our monthly meal on the 1st Wednesday of each month. With their support we have not missed one month even throughout the Covid-19 shutdown.

We are already seeing the Soup Kitchen get busier. If you are able to help cook a portion of the meal OR if you are able to purchase food to go with the meal, we would appreciate your assistance. 

Click here to find the monthly menu & sign up. Please read the note on the Sign Up Genius with details about food drop off locations & times.
