Special Thanks

A special thanks to all the people and organizations that have made donations to the Blue Door Soup Kitchen. Your kind support and help have been a wonderful contribution to the Greater Sudbury area and is greatly appreciated.


The volunteer program at the Blue Door is a great place to discover how to help those in need in your own community.

There are currently 50 volunteers who prepare food, serve it, and clean the facility on a rotating basis, as well as operate the bi-monthly Bingo at the Boardwalk Gaming Centre.

We would love to see you on our team
