Mobile Soup Kitchen Brings Healthy Food Directly to People in Need

  • Local Champion: Cup of Cold Water
  • Date Funded: March 6, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $25,000

On any given night in Lander, hundreds of people are food insecure and are in need of a healthy meal. And while there are some programs that offer free meals, not everyone can access shelters or soup kitchens, the food isn’t always nutritious, and lines are often very long. To address these problems, a Lander resident is creating a mobile soup kitchen with a trailer that can deliver healthy, hot meals to people at the most convenient locations, eliminating the need for people to find their own transportation. Working with Cup of Cold Water Ministries, the Lander resident reached out to the LOR Foundation for help getting the idea in motion—literally and figuratively. A grant from LOR will help the organization acquire and license a trailer, purchase food and gas, and pay for high-quality food.
