The Las Vegas Community Soup Kitchen operates completely on donations of food, money and time from volunteers in the community. For the first three years of operation, it served approximately 100-125 free meals per month. It started by being open once a week, on Thursday at noon in the basement of the First United Methodist Church. Since the price of gas started escalating a few months ago, the number has increased to between 600-650 free meals per month. An additional day was added in September when a free meal is also offered Tuesdays at 4 p.m.
We would like to acknowledge the generous personal donation of $1,000 worth of food items from Ed Davis, food services manager with Morrison Food Service at NMBHI. This will go a long way toward giving persons in the community a free hot meal at least twice a week through the winter months. We are blessed to have such generous persons living and working in our community.
