    Pay It Forward at Soul Kitchen

    Pay it Forward cards may be purchased with a donation of $20.00. Soul Kitchen is not a pay what you can or want model, we ask for a minimum donation of $10.00 per meal, this just about covers the cost of each individual meal. If you are having difficulty paying the $10 minimum we encourage you to volunteer. It helps us in our mission and it’s fun and rewarding. Our main objective is to feed people in need, and this is a help to many in crises and in tough economic times.
