Soup and Bread

I read about Soup and Bread on Blue Kitchen's blog.  Soup and Bread offers soup every Wednesday in a local restaurant/coffee house by volunteers from all around the community.  It seems the average is 4-5 crockpots full of soup and they're served from 5pm until it's gone, about 2 1/2 hours later.  The soups and bread are free but it provides an opportunity for those who can donate to give towards a pre-selected local charity as well.

My thoughts first went to a couple of older gentlemen who make their way around the local historic town where I work.  The weather is cold now and yet they are outside for most of the day.  Wouldn't warm soup, even if it's only once a week, be a great way to let them know we care about their well-being?  Feeding people seems like such an easy and charitable thing to do.  Especially if a town got behind it.
