It was an historic day for the Soup Kitchen on April 23 as the crew celebrated 10 years of bringing islanders together with soup and conversation. Photo courtesy of Soup Kitchen | Sharon and Mike Berry enjoy the 10th anniversary part at the Soup Kitchen. Mike is youth minister at the Island Church. Sharon volunteers in the kitchen.

Located in the basement of the Island Church (formerly CMA) at the corner of Sixth and Cascade in Langley, the Soup Kitchen feeds anyone who walks in, from those needing food to those needing company, to those simply looking forward to a good time with the cheerful staff.

The originators of the “Soup’s On” soup kitchen are Sharon Giberson and Connie Angst, and the kitchen now operates two days a week.

The Tuesday crew includes: cooks, Dan Saul, Dr. Dan Halbeman and Bill Stewart; prep cooks, Lori Katzakian and Marsha Wolfert; also, Sandy Green who organizes the breads, beverages, desserts etc. with help from many volunteers.

The Thursday crew includes: cooks Saul Kitz, Sally Berry and Jean Matheny; prep cooks Rick Klein and Pat Hill; and Joan Langstaff preps and organizes the breads, beverages, desserts etc. with help from many volunteers.

If you would like to help or volunteer, call Jean Matheny at 221-6966 or the church office at 221-6980.
