Kenneth Butler Memorial Soup Kitchen Operating Endowment Fund
In April, 2015, the Kenneth Butler Memorial Soup Kitchen Operating Endowment Fund was created under the administration of the Hancock County Community Foundation. The endowment fund opens the door for an additional source of operating income – a “forever” fund to provide a perpetual stream of operating income. This income can be utilized by our organization to help support day-to-day operations and services for generations to come. In addition to cash gifts, an endowment fund benefits greatly from gifts made through wills, retirement plans, charitable annuities and trusts.
If you would like to make a contribution to the Kenneth Butler Memorial Soup Kitchen Endowment Fund, please contact Mary Gibble, President, Hancock County Community Foundation, 312 E. Main Street, Greenfield, IN 46140 (317) 462-8870. Online gifts can be made at: giveHCgrowHC.org “Donate Online”. Your generous gifts allow us to strengthen the long-term financial security of our organization as we focus on our mission to serve and create a brighter future for Hancock County.

Our vision is that Greenfield, Indiana will be a city on a hill where the world will see that a community can exist without hunger.
The soup kitchen was inspired by the spirit of Kenneth Butler who was once a fire chief in Greenfield. He was a man who dedicated his time to helping those in need through truck-stop ministries, prison ministries, and taking in homeless people. So, when a small group of dedicated people initiated the renovation and creation of the soup kitchen, they felt there was no better person to memorialize than Chief Butler. Remodeling of the building began in December, 2008, and the kitchen opened its doors to the public on October 12, 2009. All remodeling was done by volunteers and funded by the community. The support of our volunteers and the community continues to be amazing.
