Disciples Kitchen, Serving the Lord by Serving Our Neighbors
The Disciples Kitchen in Waynesboro, VA is a local soup kitchen open to individuals and families in need of a hot meal.
Meals are served Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 11:30 am to 12:15 pm in the Fellowship Hall of2nd Presbyterian Church on Commerce Ave. And, breakfast is served each Saturday from 10:00 to 10:45 a.m. at Basic United Methodist Church on the corner of 5th & Delphine. All meals are served free-of-charge to anyone in need.
Disciples Kitchen is a non-denominational ministry sponsored by more than 30 churches and organizations and close to 250 active volunteers. Since it opened its doors in September 2007, Disciples Kitchen has served almost 25,000 meals. Each meal averages around 60 diners.
The goal of the program is to share what God has given us - His love and His blessings - by providing a hot, nutritious meal free-of-charge to anyone who needs it. This is in keeping with Matthew 25 where Jesus replied to the question,
“When was it we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and you gave me something to drink? ... Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family you did it to me.”
The body of Christ works best when it works together, and Discipleship and service to our Lord knows no boundaries. We are always appreciative of donations and volunteer resources.
