Who Are We?
The Soup Kitchen @ St. Barnabas is the community outreach feeding meals ministry of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in McMinnville, Oregon (Diocese of Western Oregon) and a designated Jubilee Ministry of The Episcopal Church.
We opened the doors to our Parish Hall in March of 1990 and welcomed, without conditions, those whom we are called to serve - "I was hungry and you fed me" (Matthew 25). Some of those we serve appear to be homeless. Most are families struggling to stretch a limited income. All want to be respected and accepted.
There is no "soup line" as seen in Great Depression-era photos. Our guests are served restaurant-style from an ever-changing menu of delicious and nutritious food.
