Collingwood Soup Van

Collingwood Soup Van

The Collingwood Soup Van began operating on 6 December 1998 and provides assistance to people who might be facing tough times. We offer a friendly face and a warm meal to the Collingwood community six nights a week.

Last year, our 193 volunteers assisted 141 people per night.

This service could not exist without the generous support of our many volunteers, sponsors, donors and suppliers.
