Serving the Bodies and the Souls of the Hungry

THE LADLE is an ecumenical soup kitchen that makes its home in the Fellowship Hall of St. John's Lutheran Church; 1320 Church Street; Old Economy; Ambridge, PA.

Every Monday afternoon between 5:00 PM and 6:00 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, Sewickley Presbyterian Church, Concord Presbyterian Church and all the individuals, churches and organizations that donate to our ministry, including Custom Cakes by Brooke.

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 21 local churches/ organizations that prepare and serve meals every Monday.
