The Soup Kitchen operates out of the Mt. Arrowsmith Salvation Army Community Church in Parksville where a hot mid-day meal is served 4 days a week, for a requested donation of $4 per person to provide nutritious meals to those in need in our community. We serve an average of 120 meals a day and strive to not just meet the physical needs of those who come, but to provide a safe place that is welcoming and accepting of all, that promotes the dignity of all who enter our doors and that facilitates a sense of community for those who gather.
Our Soup Kitchen Supervisor and dedicated team of volunteers work to bring the mission and values of The Salvation Army into the delivery of every meal. Meals typically include a main course, salad and dessert with vegetarian options available most days.
