THE KITCHEN will continue to serve food insecure patrons nutritious, hot meals all year round.

Durham Region's only full-service barrier free soup kitchen. With the leadership of nearly 500 volunteers a month Durham Outlook serves between 150 to 250 meals per day, approximately 55,000 to 65,000 meals per year.

Through partnerships with other non-profit organizations and local churches, meal tickets are distributed free-of-charge to individuals and families experiencing poverty and food insecurity. For those unable to access free tickets, we serve them anyway. No one is ever turned away.

We served our first meal on October 15, 1990.


Since our founding in 1990, we have served more than 1.4 million meals.
