Our Father’s Table Soup Kitchen volunteers, Larry Hurley, Willie Webb, and Milton Grier, along side the Little Caesars Love Kitchen.
Our Father’s Table Soup Kitchen was recently visited by a Little Caesars mobile restaurant. Arriving in the morning, the mobile restaurant was quickly able to serve up 40 pizzas for Our Father’s Table home delivery clients. The Little Caesars Love Kitchen travels across the United States to help those in need. In operation since 1985, these restaurants on wheels have served more than three million people. Little Caesars franchise owners donate the resources necessary to make each Love Kitchen serving a success. An estimated 50,000 franchisees, their employees and corporate colleagues have volunteered over the years to support the program in their local communities.
Our Father’s Table Soup Kitchen recently celebrated its 33rd year serving the Gifford Community. Currently, due to COVID-19 constraints, Our Father’s Table is limiting its operations to the home delivery of meals to the elderly of Gifford. Our Father’s Table expects to resume serving meals at its dining room as soon as it is safe and feasible.
Our Father Table Soup Kitchen is a 501(c)3 located at 4221 28th Avenue in Gifford and uses the facilities of The Mount Zion AME Church. Volunteers are always needed and welcomed. For more information visit our website at: http://ourfathertablesoupkitchen.org/.
Mary Huber and Milton Grier, volunteers at Our Father’s Table Soup Kitchen prepare sandwiches for delivery to the elderly and homebound of Gifford.

In 2020, Our Father’s Table hand delivered 10,483 meals to those in need and in partnership with the Food Pantry of Indian River County, the Soup Kitchen delivered 8,960 pounds of non-perishable food items. With the support of Ken Gregory Produce, Our Father’s Table was able to distribute over 3,000 pounds of fresh produce to the residents of Gifford.

In December, our Father’s Table received a generous $4,000 grant from the Indian River Foundation for the Elderly in support of their home delivery program. Established in 1967, the Foundation is devoted to aiding elderly county residents who, because of illness, hardship, or catastrophe, find themselves in need of financial assistance. Their medical assistance program helps defray the cost of medicine, medical supplies, cataract surgery and other minor procedures. Their health maintenance program helps defray the cost of food and other necessities.
