Belgrade, Serbia, October 22, 2021
The Archdiocese of Belgrade of the Serbian Orthodox Church opened a soup kitchen in the Zemun Polje neighborhood of Belgrade in 2014. Since then, it has been preparing thousands of meals a day for the capital’s needy.
Every day, 2,000 cooked meals are distributed from the kitchen to 5 locations throughout the city, from where the needy can pick them up. There are also 31 dining rooms where meals are served daily to those who have no roof over their heads, reports the Serbian Orthodox Church.
The soup kitchen features professional kitchen equipment, a bakery, and a central grocery store.
In August, the Brotherhood of Orthodox Youth of St. Luke of Kotor donated $1,765 it had raised to the Serbian Church’s soup kitchen that operates at the Cathedral of Christ’s Resurrection in Podgorica, which feeds 200 families daily.
