Who we are

THE LADLE is an ecumenical soup kitchen that makes its home in the First United Presbyterian Church at Ninth and Maplewood in Ambridge, Pennsylvania.

Every Monday afternoon between 5:30 PM and 6:30 PM, we provide a hot meal and warm hospitality to our guests.

The Ladle and Hearth  is especially grateful for the continuing support from theBeaver County Foundation, TMK-IPSCO and all the individuals, churches and organizations that donate to our ministry.

This support allows The Ladle to continue its mission, to provide meals and other supportive  services to those who are in need in Ambridge and its surrounding communities. 


This mission is supported by volunteer groups from 18 local churches/ organizations that prepare and serve meals every Monday.
