St. Vincent Pallotti’s Kitchen is Durham Outlook’s core program. We are Durham Region’s only seven-day-a-week, 365-day-a-year soup kitchen. 25 years ago, we served our first meal on October 15, 1990.
Through partnerships with other non-profit organizations and local churches, meal tickets are distributed free-of-charge to individuals and families experiencing poverty and food insecurity. For those unable to access free tickets, a four-course, restaurant-style meal costs $1.50. Children under 12 always eat free.
With the leadership of more than 900 volunteers a month, St. Vincent Pallotti’s Kitchen serves an average of 130 meals per day, approximately 50,000 meals per year.
Since our founding in 1990, we have served more than 1.2 million meals.
