EXTENDED TABLE - SOUP KITCHEN

GLENWOOD SPRINGS  | RIFLE  

·ANYONE IN NEED CAN HAVE A GOOD MEAL·

The Extended Table (soup kitchen) has been a vital part of LIFT-UP’s programs for the past 23 years. After its launch in 1995 by members of The Glenwood Mennonite Church, with support from other area churches, The Extended Table was brought under the umbrella of LIFT-UP right from the beginning to make it a community service that would not be associated with with any particular church or individual, and to provide a channel for people to donate to the outreach.

Lift-UP's soup kitchen’s main aim is to feed the people who can't afford to buy food. We are dedicated to preventing hunger for destitute people in our valley. Extended Table is run entirely by LIFT-UP's volunteers and serves more than 2,500 people a year.  This vital community program is funded through donations valley institutions,  government department, local churches and other non-profit organizations.

VOLUNTEER AT THE EXTENDED TABLE - SOUP KITCHEN

Over the years many individuals, groups of friends, business colleagues, churches and organizations have volunteered 1-5 nights per month at the Extended Table, making it possible for the soup kitchen to be run at a very low annual cost. The volunteer team in charge of the evening also purchases, prepares and serves the food, along with cleaning up for the night. Are you or your group interested in hosting an Extended Table night?
