Our Commercial Equipment

is the Volunteer's Dream

In 2020 we upgraded to Commercial Refrigerator and Freezer and a Commercial Gas Range & Oven, as well as adding new ice maker and warming rack.

It's no wonder that we have volunteers and local restaurants begging to get to cook in our kitchen

We've been serving soup in Greenville for over 40 years.

JOY Soup Kitchen was formed when Frances White, the director of the original Greenville  Soup Kitchen, serving at The Mount Hermon Lodge, decided to retire. It was then that The Greenville Soup Kitchen joined forces with Barbara Taft and Jean Dawson who were serving meals at York Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church in west Greenville. Nancy Singleton suggested the name of Jesus Others and You.  In 1995, we moved to the JOY Community Building  at 700 Albemarle Avenue.
