Serving Our Neighbors in Need

Daily Soup Kitchen

Cosgrove's Daily Soup Kitchen

Cosgrove's Soup Kitchen was established more than 30 years ago and has been an important ministry serving those suffering from the effects of poverty: children, the elderly, the homeless, the mentally and physically disabled, and the working poor. It is the only facility in the Metro East area that offers a free noon meal 6 days a week, 52 weeks a year!
