Thousands of men, women and children in the Geelong community are struggling to put three healthy meals on the table each day.   With your help, Feed Geelong is doing something about it!

Every Thursday throughout July, cafes around Geelong will be hosting ‘Soup Kitchen Thursday’, raising valuable funds for Feed Geelong.

Every Thursday throughout July (between 12 -2pm unless sold out), you can grab a wonderful bowl of takeaway soup and a slice of La Madre bread for only $7.

This year we welcome on board Pakington Cottage, Busters Bar & Grill, Green Mumma, Box Office Cafe and 63 degrees to join as a Soup Kitchen supporters. Soup is available from the following cafes:

All soup and bread are generously donated to ensure that 100% of soup sales will go directly to Feed Geelong.
