The Extended Table Soup Kitchen


The Extended Table Soup Kitchen has been a vital part of LIFT-UP’s service to hungry people for over 20 years.

The Extended Table was launched in 1995 by members of The Glenwood Mennonite Church, with support from other area churches. The First United Methodist Church in Glenwood Springs offered the use of their kitchen and fellowship hall to host the soup kitchen, and their generosity has continued all of these years.

St. Mary of the Crown and St. Vincent prepares and serves the Extended Table meal the first Thursday of each month, as well as those occasional nights that other volunteers throughout the Roaring Fork Valley may find it necessary to cancel their assigned night. If you would like to volunteer as a night’s captain, a food supplier, a server or a financial backer for supplies please contact Theresa Neislanik at 970.963.2822 or 970.618.7766 or at and please include Extended Table in the subject line.
