The Soup Kitchen #LoopMinistries
Soup kitchens in America originated around 1929 when the effects of a growing depression began. The need for soup kitchens was felt even more so when the tailspin in the economy worsened in 1932, and 12 million Americans, about 25 percent of the normal labor force, were out of work. It is hard to believe the need for food pantries and supper programs is still great in the year 2017. LOOP Ministries relies on donations of food, time, talent and monetary supplements to sustain the demand of hunger in Rochester, NY.
