Someone Cares Soup Kitchen

SCSK Logo

Our mission is simple: To feed a hot and nutritional meal to the homeless, the unemployed, the working poor, the mentally challenged, the physically challenged, senior citizens, and most importantly - the children.

The Soup Kitchen provides 200 meals per day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year! We make our meals fresh daily, consisting of soup, vegetable and fruit salads, hearty and filling side dishes, bread, dessert, and water. Along with this meal, our guests also get to choose from a wide variety of donations from our partners, such as Trader Joe's, Wal-Mart, The National Charity League, and community members like you who want to support our mission!


EARTH DAY PROJECT:

Art & Writing Kits

(We Request a Minimum 20 Kits Per Volunteer)

For the past 20 years, the Someone Cares Tutoring Program has been dedicated to helping our children reach academic excellence and are not stopping now! These kits are not only a way to keep children's minds sharp during this time but hopefully also as a much-needed "cabin fever" break for both children and adults.


Art & Writing Kits Contents & Instructions (Unisex & Age Appropropriate for K-4th Graders):

Using 1 paper gift bag (with handles), place items listed below in the bag, leaving them open (do not close with tape, etc.). Please be sure to label each bag with the grade level you have made them for. We will distribute these kits during our weekend Family Food Distribution Program and our mid-week Newport Mesa Food Distribution Program.

  • 1 Coloring Book
  • 1 Set Crayons
  • 1 Set Washable Markers
  • 1 Alphabet Tracing or Math Book
  • 1 Small Tablet of Writing Paper
  • 1 Small Set of Playdough
  • 1 Pair Child Safety Scissors
  • 1 Glue Stick
  • 1 Small Brain Game
  • 1 Bottle of Bubbles

Once completed, you can drop them off during our
Donation Drop Off Times: Monday through Friday from 10 AM - 3 PM.
Thank you again so much for your generosity and kindness, we know the kids will love them!

Mission Statement

Our mission is simple: To feed a daily nutritional meal to the homeless, the unemployed, the working poor, the mentally challenged, the physically challenged, senior citizens, and most importantly - the children. We provide this meal to our guests in a friendly, non-threatening atmosphere. We believe that no one should go to bed hungry, on the street, or otherwise. The Soup Kitchen provides a nutritional and tasteful meal to the less fortunate in our community. A meal that we would be proud to serve to our family at home. A well-balanced meal, made fresh daily, consisting of vegetable soup, lettuce and fruit salads, hearty and filling side dishes, bread, and muffins, dessert, milk, and water.
