The Federal Way Community Caregiving Network (FWCCN) has provided help to low income residents of the communities of Federal Way and Northeast Tacoma since 1988. Our mission is to help families stay in their homes. We offer hope to families by providing the basic elements of survival: food and shelter. We do this through the following services: rent assistance, temporary motel stays, gasoline vouchers, discounted bus passes, and donated items such as coats, hats, gloves, blankets, and personal hygiene items. We also serve three hot meals weekly at three Federal Way churches and provide monthly laundry services.
The Souper Supper fundraising event began in 2000 when the Caregiving Network realized the community's low-income population needed more help than it could provide on its limited budget. The supper is our organization’s primary way of obtaining funds and goes a long way towards helping us complete our mission. This year our goal is to raise $50,000.
Proceeds support our Emergency Services and Community Supper programs, Laundry Program and Federal Way Community Gardens, which assist our low-income neighbors with food, rent, shelter, gasoline and other basic needs.
For the first 15 years, members of the community gathered at Steel Lake Presbyterian Church in late October for this fabulous, fun event. In 2015, the 16th Annual Souper Supper changed to a new location, Saghalie Middle School. In 2016, we returned to Steel Lake Presbyterian. In 2017, 2018 and 2019 the event was hosted at the Christian Faith Center, and again this year our 21st Annual “Souper Supper” will be at the Christian Faith Center on Friday, October 2nd, 2020 at 5:30pm.
Attendees are served more than a dozen varieties of soup, salad, rolls, beverages and desserts, all donated by local restaurants, cafes and caterers. The Federal Way Community Gardens provide organic lettuce for the salad. The Souper Supper often includes auctions or raffles as part of the event.

We would love to see you but it looks like we will not be able to enjoy soup & salad with you this year.
We still need your help! The FWCCN is continuing to help those in need during this Coronavirus pandemic with a modified rent assistance program, 3 free weekly meals provided outdoors and the organic Federal Way gardens are producing fresh fruits and vegetables to help seniors and those in need. Please consider a donation this year. Click the donation button at the bottom of this page to donate on-line or you can mail to: FWCCN, PO Box 4717, Federal Way, WA 98063
