Object Capuchin Soup Kitchen is a religious community of friars inspired by St Francis of Assisi. The Soup Kitchen got its official start during the Great Depression of 1929; in response to the time’s overwhelming social needs, the friars turned to the men and women of the Secular Franciscans and joined together with them to collect food from farms, make soup, bake bread and serve meals in the hall next to the monastery. From these beginnings grew the Capuchin Soup Kitchen of today. Its activities range from meal programs to urban farms, children’s programs and therapeutic communities for substance abusers.
