About Stewpot Community Services

Stewpot Community Services provides assistance at no charge to central Jackson residents who are in need of food, shelter, clothing, love and encouragement.

Founded by several Jackson congregations in 1981, Stewpot has grown from a simple soup kitchen into a locally supported nonprofit agency that includes four shelters, counseling services, food and clothing services, community development projects and children's programs. As an interfaith ministry, Stewpot gratefully receives funding and welcomes volunteers from more than 200 congregations and hundreds of individuals and businesses.
