Meeting People
Where They Are

HOPE First is a collaborative effort of HOPE Calloway, First United Methodist Church, and Soup for the Soul. These agencies will be working together in the Christian Life Center of First United Methodist Church located right across the street from the soup kitchen. Each Monday, folks are invited to pick up a meal at Soup for the Soul’s take-out window and go across the street to the church where they can eat at tables inside. While there, people will have the opportunity to take home free essential items such as hygiene products, laundry detergent, and more. There will also be showers available for anyone who needs to freshen up.
