Gettysburg Prince of Peace Episcopal Church makes donation to the Gettysburg Community Soup Kitchen
The Gettysburg Prince of Peace Episcopal Church held a pancake breakfast fundraiser to benefitted three local non-profit agencies. One of those agencies was the Gettysburg Community Soup Kitchen. The Gettysburg Soup Kitchen started serving lunches to the community’s hungry people in 1991 from the kitchen of the Prince of Peace Church. In 2011, the church purchased the Peace House on High Street and the Soup Kitchen was moved there. In its new home, it was able to serve lunches seven days a week, every day of the year including holidays.
As of April this year, the Gettysburg Community Soup Kitchen has served 238,550 meals. That is approximately 1,146 more meals than the previous year. These meals can only be provided to those in need through the generosity of the Prince of Peace Church and many other churches, businesses and individuals.
