Soup Cafe, Bismarck ND
Feeding the Body, the Mind & the Soul
In March of 2015 after celebrating six successful years of serving the hungry in our community we made the decision to search for a second location for the Soup Cafe. At the time we were bursting at the seams serving anywhere from 100 to 200+ people a day six days per week. The homeless shelter was 2 1/2 miles away which meant that for the homeless to get a hot meal they would have to walk 5 miles round trip. So we started a campaign to raise money to open a second location for the Soup Cafe, one where we would be closer to the homeless shelter. Just as we started this project our landlord dropped the bombshell that he was terminating our lease on June 1st. So at the end of May 2015, we closed our doors and Bismarck has been without a soup kitchen since our closure.
