SOUP KITCHEN IN PROVINCETOWN
Written by Gary Hanna on November 29, 2023
Established in 1992, the Soup Kitchen In Provincetown (SKIP) provides a hot, nourishing lunch to Outer Cape Cod residents, November through April, Monday through Friday. Lunch is served from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm on weekdays at the Provincetown United Methodist Church, 20 Shank Painter Road, Provincetown.
SKIP serves over 150 meals a day, over 23,000 meals each season, to residents in need or seeking community during the long wintertime months. The lack of proper nutrition is a serious problem for many in this area, affecting both seniors on fixed incomes and the workers facing seasonal unemployment caused by the tourist economy. The warm, sociable atmosphere of the dining room can also be as nourishing as the meal itself.
SKIP has expanded its services to include “to-go” weekend meals, homeless prevention assistance, nutrition counseling, and health monitoring. A representative from the Homeless Prevention Council offers housing assistance to anyone in need from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. several days a week. SKIP also provides a twice-monthly nursing health check every other Tuesday.
