The history of soup kitchens in America can be traced back to the year 1929 with the effects of a growing depression. When soup kitchens first appeared, they were run by churches or private charities and served mostly soup and bread. Soup was economical because water could be added to serve more people. Soup kitchens continue to exist for the homeless and struggling families across America.
The Soup Kitchen in Boynton Beach is a remarkable example of what sincere dedication can create when coupled with the service of a group of highly committed and compassionate people.
