Belfast Soup Kitchen
Our services

Belfast Soup Kitchen does more than provide high quality, nutritious meals 5 days a week year-round. We create a supportive, warm environment for guests to gather for conversation and to access resources. We roll out the welcome mat that is the first step on the path to greater independence and hope for the future.

Per current CDC Guidelines, all guests who are fully vaccinated may choose not to wear masks. Guests are required to use hand sanitizer provided when entering dining room.

Guests who are not fully vaccinated are always required to wear masks when not seated at their table.

All food will be served in containers provided by Belfast Soup Kitchen. No containers brought from home will be allowed.

All Belfast Soup Kitchen staff and volunteers will wear masks while interacting with guests.

If you are not feeling well, please stay home or request curbside service.

Coffee/Social Hour

Coffee Hour: Monday – Friday 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Every weekday morning we hold our “coffee hour,” a welcoming, bistro-like setting, specially created to build community, and combat the social isolation often felt by our guests. During this time, guests socialize over a good cup of coffee and fine pastries and breads. Table service is provided to all guests.

Daily, Homemade Lunch

Curbside/Takeout Service: Monday – Friday 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Inside Dining Service: Monday – Friday 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Come and enjoy a delicious meal in a bistro-like setting. Table service is provided to each guest. Open year-round, we serve 100-140 guests onsite in an average day and an additional 50 guests by delivery. We also supply guests with produce, bread and pastries to take home daily. Meat is available every 1st, 3rd, and 4th Tuesday of each month.

Emergency Food Baskets

We supply emergency groceries to individuals. We provide emergency food boxes after operating hours as needed.

Health Screenings

A Public Health Nurse from Waldo County General Hospital offers guests blood pressure and cholesterol screening, flu shots during flu season and diabetic counseling.

Kristen Miale I President, Good Shepherd Food Bank
