The mission of the House of Love Soup Kitchen/Pantry, a community faith based organization is to help our neighbors who are experiencing hardships due to life circumstances. We are here to help, guide, and encourage them regardless of their situations and to try and help them break that cycle of poverty that exists in their lives.
The House of Love Soup Kitchen was founded on July 15, 2008 by the Church of God and Saints of Christ members Toih Moncur and Rev. Michael Harris. Since March of 2012 we have partnered with the Hillside Community Food Bank to sponsor a pantry as well. We distribute nutritious items including meat, vegetables, fruit, dairy products, rice, pasta and many other food items enabling families to prepare wholesome meals for themselves and their children and to stretch their limited food resources.
Although our primary goal was to address the food insecurity plaguing our community, we’ve evolved into much more. Since 2008, we’ve partnered with the Church of God and Saints of Christ, Hillside Community Food Bank, AT&T Pioneers (bookbags, turkeys), Forester Insurance Company (socks), Seton Hall University (Food Recovery Program), Somerset Community Action Program, The Work-Family Connection, and Summit Ridge Nursing Facility (December donations). With these partnerships, we’ve been able to donate food to local shelters, pass out socks to the homeless, give out backpacks, schools supplies, turkeys, hats, and gloves to the community.
All are welcome every 4th Tuesday!
