The Daily Bread Soup Lunch Program is among the most successful community outreach programs in the San Angelo District. Conceived in 1984 out of a concern for God's less fortunate and homeless people, the Daily Bread Soup Lunch Program is an excellent example of "Christians in action".
Open 11am - 1pm, Monday - Saturday, and on most holidays, the "Soup Kitchen" feeds as many as 175 people or more daily, with the average patron eating three or more servings of hot food, as well as cold beverages, crackers or bread, and dessert or fresh fruit. We provided over 47,000 meals to more than 18,000 patrons in 1999. We served over 50,000 meals in 2014 and 2015. We are on track to exceed those numbers in 2016.
Recognizing that many of our patrons feel especially isolated during the Christmas and other seasonal holidays, the Soup Kitchen remains open on most holidays and serves special holiday meals for its patrons. A full-course meal, gifts for the children (donated by members of Wesley Trinity and other sponsors), and other activities help to brighten the season for our patrons.
