There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.
2023 has been a year that has seen many challenges to the less fortunate in our community. The financial picture was bleak from the beginning of the year, and has only seemed to have gotten worse. There have been organizations similar to Soup for the Soul who have been forced to terminate their operations due to lack of funding, lack of volunteers and not being able to keep up with the needs of the people they served. That being said, Soup for the Soul Dundalk has seen a noticeable increase in clients and a greater need for support. There are many individuals and businesses who provide financial support, but the need is getting greater every week. Our product partners (see Contributor Page) do what they can to keep our shelves stocked for the regular Monday Food Giveaways and for us to have some products in case of an emergency situation. Our goal is to minimize the food insecurity that exists in our community and show those less fortunate that there are people who care about them.
In addition to our primary mission of assisting the food insecure population, we like to provide other services to our clients. Events like our Easter Giveaway, Memorial Day and Labor Day cookouts, Back to School Celebration (school supplies, hair cutting, etc.), Thanksgiving Meal Giveaway, and Christmas Celebration are all welcomed and needed by our clientele. All of our efforts require volunteers, product contributors and financial contributors.

Soup for the Soul is a Nonprofit 501(c)(3) Community Organization addressing food insecurity in the Dundalk area. We are group of volunteers who want to give back to the community Through providing food to those in need. We rely on the generosity of patrons and businesses who donate their time, resources and money to allow us this opportunity to provide assistance to those in need.
Soup for the Soul was established in 1982 by the Haines family, operating as Rita's Supper Table in the basement of the St. Rita School Gymnasium. In 2015, the organization moved from its original location to the Dundalk United Methodist Church. When that congregation sold the building, we were blessed to have obtained a place of our own.
At the current time, we are providing a food pantry on Monday afternoons from 2:00 pm until 4:00 pm. The foodstuffs offered are canned goods, boxed goods, breads, free groceries, free meals and other goods provided by the grocery stores and restaurants who partner with us. Once a month we partner with the Maryland Food Bank, which provides fresh vegetables and fruits for us to give away.
Feel free to visit our facility during normal business hours.
