About Hickory Soup Kitchen

In March of 1983 lay leaders of six “downtown” churches began serving the hungry on a rotating basis. By 1985, the kitchen was serving 25-90 people five days a week and the old Highland Fire Station became its first permanent home. During 1990, the kitchen outgrew its space and needed more space. The City of Hickory offered the old Post Office Annex for a new facility. This is the present location of the Hickory Soup Kitchen. A building campaign raised $220,000 for renovations, including a walk-in freezer/refrigerator, shower facilities, and a modern kitchen with up-to-date institutional appliances.
