About Elijah’s Promise
The Elijah’s Promise Community Kitchen was started in August of 1989 and since it’s inception, the soup kitchen has grown from an organization of three paid staff and 100 volunteers serving 35,000 meals a year to a multi-service organization of 26 paid staff and over 3,000 volunteers serving over 170,000 meals annually between all of our meal service programs.
We are more than just a Soup Kitchen
Elijah’s Promise harness the power of food within our job training curriculum, community garden programming, social service assistance to individuals and families, community focused nutrition classes, social enterprise food businesses, and community food systems advocacy.
For decades, we have worked with our community and listened to their needs to build programming that address needs. Everyday we strive to do more to change lives through the power of food – that is our promise to the Greater New Brunswick community.
