North Shore Soup Kitchen
"...Serving the Hungry & Homeless of Glen Cove..."
Green Bar

The North Shore Soup Kitchen is a not-for-profit, volunteer based organization. Established in 1989 to feed hungry people in the Glen Cove area, it recently changed its name. Located in the First Baptist Church, we serve hot meals three days a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from noon to 1:00PM. This is the only soup kitchen on Nassau County’s north shore.

Who We Are

Who We Are Arrow
It was founded by volunteers in 1989 when it became apparent that hunger was not limited to developing countries or inner city ghettos but was right here on Long Island. We are staffed by more than 100 volunteers who serve a hot meal three days a week to hungry people in the Glen Cove area. These dedicated workers cook, serve and clean up after meals. They also work behind the scenes, ordering supplies, writing our newsletter, acknowledging donations, sorting donated clothing, and keeping our books.

What We Do

What We Do Arrow
The problem of hunger touches all ages, races, and nationalities, even on the North Shore of Long Island. The North Shore Soup Kitchen serves over 15,000 meals annually, including holiday meals. In addition to serving meals, it provides support services with the goal of empowering families to become self-sufficient.

Those who wish to make in-kind donations can bring non-perishable food to the soup kitchen on Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday between 9:00 and 10:00 am. Many schools, religious organizations and businesses contribute in this way. Of course, individual financial support is always needed. Donations can be sent to The North Shore Soup Kitchen, P.O. Box 168, Glen Cove NY 11542. The North Shore Soup Kitchen is a registered 501(3)(c) Not-for-Profit organization and all contributions are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
