“We are seeing 60 – 100 people in our community taking part in the “Soups On Again” program each week,” says GBRC Founder & President, Rev. Albertine LeBlanc. “Soup’s On has proven to be a very positive experience for the people of our community. It has encouraged many of our seniors and shut-ins to come out to enjoy a meal and socialize.”
The lunches are free, however donations are accepted at the door to help support the program. This program is made possible with the assistance from community groups, volunteers, churches and students.

GBRC thanks all of the organizers and volunteers for their partnership and enthusiasm, who have worked diligently on a minimal budget serving anywhere from 60-100 people a week.

The free luncheons are open to ANYONE and EVERYONE to come and have a meal and socialize. Anyone wishing to volunteer to cook, serve, or organize, please contact one of the hosting organizations listed above, or Joy Underhill at 843-9024.

Bring your friends, elders or someone that just needs to get out of the house and have a say with old friends or meet new ones!
