We appreciate any help you can give

It takes donations, sponsorships and grants of more than $150,000 per year to continue helping those in need. Our goals are financial viability and sustainability.

At JOY Soup Kitchen, the primary focus is to deal with food insecurity by providing food to the poor and homeless in the Greenville community. We are the only place in Greenville that prepares and serves free, nutritious, midday and evening meals to address this essential need. For some people, this may be their only meal of the day.

On average, we serve around 50,000 free meals per year. Each meal costs $2, so a little can go a long way.
