The Wheeling Soup Kitchen

Soup Kitchen History

Since 1982, the Soup Kitchen has provided warm meals and companionship as a non-profit interfaith ministry incorporated with the State of West Virginia. The Soup Kitchen was the brainchild of the Wheeling Council of Churches and started serving a bowl of soup and sandwich once a week at St. Luke's Church on Wheeling Island. The Soup Kitchen had several homes, St. Matthews and the YWCA until a permanent home was purchased. We purchased and renovated the Old Central Fire Station into a beautiful Soup Kitchen that is clean, warm and inviting.
