In 1981, the Samaritan Soup Kitchen opened as an interdenominational, volunteer-based ministry dedicated to ending hunger. Since then, the demand has increased from serving 26 meals on opening day to serving an average of 400 meals a day. Our volunteers and staff have served more than 4 million meals to hungry and homeless people in our community.
The Samaritan Soup Kitchen operates as Winston-SalemÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s only soup kitchen. Men, women and children are served a warm lunch, 365 days a year with no questions asked. The Samaritan Soup Kitchen also provides dinner and breakfast to our nightly shelter guests.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
