Soup Kitchen

Home / Serve / Soup Kitchen

The Sheil Catholic Center community cooks and serves dinner at Hilda’s Place Transitional Shelter. Our dinners provide much needed nutritional and emotional support to 20 individuals each Sunday.

During this time of pandemic, we are serving in a socially distant manner. You can cook a meal at home or support a local restaurant. Then simply drop off the meal that you cooked or purchased. If you would like more information, please contact Tim Higgins,, or sign up at the button below.
