Home/Our Communities/The Landing of Lake Worth Volunteers at The Soup Kitchen

Residents at The Landing of Lake Worth understand the need of giving back to those less fortunate. That’s why we volunteer at The Soup Kitchen of Boynton Beach, also known as the “cucina de Dios”. Learn more about how residents at The Landing of Lake Worth give of their time to serve those in need.

Full Bellies. Full Hearts.

At The Soup Kitchen of Boynton Beach, also known as “Cucina de Dios”, the soup is always on. The Soup Kitchen celebrated 30 years of service to the local community in April and has served more than 3 million hot meals since its inception in 1983. Starting as a food van seeing soup and sandwiches, The Soup Kitchen has been located on the grounds of the Caridad Health Center since 1997.  Last year The Soup Kitchen served over 210,000 note meals and 1.4 million pounds of food.

Run by Enrique Zuaretto, 68, a former volunteer and board member, The Soup Kitchen has a no questions asked policy and will feed all who are hungry. He says, “It’s a wonderful job. I’m very proud.” The kitchen is an all-volunteer effort and receives no federal or local funding except from local residents and local businesses.

At The Landing of Lake Worth, we are passionate about helping others and making a difference with acts of kindness. Volunteering at The Soup Kitchen is one way that our residents use their talents to give back – and we have a lot of fun doing it! We know that we often get more than we give when we volunteer. Our residents served approximately 250 meals at The Soup Kitchen and left with a priceless feeling of purpose.

“I feel so good after assisting in this way. I feel like our team made a difference in the lives of 250 people that day.” – Resident Landon Crisp
