The mission of Daily Bread Ministries is to feed the hungry by providing one hot nutritious meal a day to whoever comes.
The Greer Soup Kitchen, a part of Daily Bread Ministries, is a non-profit, charitable organization that was founded in 1990 when concerned citizens observed that people in their own town were going hungry. One meal was served on our first day. Today over one hundred and fifty meals per day are served in a modern restaurant-style facility.
We rely completely upon donations of food and money from private citizens, churches and businesses to operate and utilize food donated by churches, restaurants, grocery stores, schools and individuals.
Our kitchen is staffed with about one hundred twenty five volunteers each week, representing businesses, individuals and over fifty area churches of all denominations.
You are invited on Sunday, November 23, at 2 p.m., to the 10th annual Merle State Hunger Walk to benefit the Greer Soup Kitchen. It is a level 1 mile walk from Memorial United Methodist Church in downtown Greer to the Soup Kitchen and back.
Meet at Memorial United Methodist Church (201 N. Main St., Greer) between 1:30 and 2 p.m. Lunch plates and commemorative T-shirts will be available.
Dog walkers are welcome!
