Every Soup Kitchen in the Brampton Area

Throughout our service to the community, we’ve gotten to know some of the hardest-hitting factors affecting individuals in need. Nutritious food, sufficient clothing, and warm shelter are all key to getting people back on their feet. That’s why we pour a lot of time and effort into our essential care program.

Soup Kitchens & Food Banks

While food banks provide vital resources to struggling households, soup kitchens give people a sense of hospitality in trying times. Many things can lay a person low, and with added economic uncertainty, sometimes a hot meal can become that much more elusive.

We’ve always believed soup kitchens give people the chance to forget their worries and nourish their bodies. While low-income households certainly struggle, homelessness means not having the necessary kitchen access to make something simple, hot, and nutritious. Food banks are critical, but soup kitchens are a lifesaver in their own right.

Homelessness & Low Income Households

As recently as 2015, 52% of families in Brampton reported income below the poverty line. With bills piling up, it’s easy to see that number rising, especially while the economy recovers from the impacts of COVID and quarantine. From 2015 to 2017, child poverty improved dramatically, but in the Brampton West riding, that decrease was no more than 0.1%.

According to Housing Hub, in the summer of 2019, 32% of homeless people in Peel faced semi permanent homelessness, while 24% went through bouts of homelessness. In these cases, a hot meal at home is not an option.

The Difference a Hot Meal Can Make

In times of personal and international economic uncertainty, keeping as many places open as safely possible will go a long way. But times are uncertain for everyone these days, as social distancing becomes the default for most organizations.

In case you’re just getting back on your feet in a place of your own, you might not have what you need in the kitchen to prepare your own meal. For those currently facing life in the street, a hot meal might only come with the help of your community.

Either way, here are your options for getting a hot meal to carry you through to better days.

During the COVID-19 crisis, we are committed to serving people up to 4 weekly hot lunches and daily breakfasts before going to work or school. Typically, we have 2 hot lunches per week, but some of the other soup kitchens in Brampton haven’t resumed their dine-in schedule yet. We keep the safety of everyone in mind as we serve those in need.

Our community care page keeps the most up-to-date info on meal service, as well as other services available. We provide holistic care for our visitors, ranging from spiritual to physical needs. Contact us at:

Their mission: “to serve and empower vulnerable members of our community by providing food and access to resources in a safe environment through volunteerism and strategic partnerships.”

Usually, they have a robust dine-in center serving multiple meals in Brampton each day. For now, they’ve opted for a takeout-only model, and COVID-19 risks have delayed dine-in events for a later date. Contact them at:

Our Thanks

These generous organizations donate their time, resources, and talent to better Canadians striving towards food security. We would like to applaud our fellow soup kitchens for the work they do.

Running a soup kitchen can come with unique challenges, especially while the safety of patrons, volunteers, and staff remains a top priority. If you’re in need or you’d like to donate or volunteer, please contact us!
