Due to the pandemic and the need to comply with social distance rules, the group had no choice but to suspend their activities since March 2019. Fortunately, the sisters are managing to prepare the meals by themselves and to distribute them at the door to those in need.
While there are no immediate plans to resume the Soup Kitchen in our parish this year, the group continues to keep in touch occasionally on their WhatsApp group.
Soup Kitchen’s History
For almost 20 years, the COS Soup Kitchen has ably supported the work of the Missionaries of Charity in Rotterdam. Our volunteers would travel as a group in 1 or 2 cars to Rotterdam every Tuesday morning to help prepare food and occasionally bring clothes and goods donated by our parish.
