Footscray Soup Van

Footscray Soup Van

The Footscray Soup Van began operating on 17 September 1989 and provides assistance to people who might be facing tough times. We offer a friendly face and a warm meal in the Western regions in and around the Footscray area seven nights a week.

Last year, our 180 volunteers assisted 141 people per night.

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

Who can access the Soup Van?

The Footscray Soup Van is a free service available to anyone in the Footscray area. We typically support people who face financial difficulties and those who are homeless.
