Laramie Soup Kitchen, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit registered with the State of Wyoming, was started in 1983 by a group of local church women who were passionate about addressing hunger in Laramie. These women prepared meals in their own homes to serve 10-12 individuals in whatever public space was available. At one point, the Durlacher house on South 5th Street served as a more permanent location, until a lasting home was found in the lower-level of
St. Matthew’s Episcopal Cathedral, where it has been located since 1988.
Now 40 years later and averaging 122 people per day, we are still driven by that same passion: increasing access to quality, nutritious food so that every person who is hungry or alone may share a meal without cost.
