Soup Days are getting underway for another season. Salvation Army Major Debbie Allen says Soup Days start today and have been well used in past years. She says the idea is to find a place for those who need something to eat at lunch. She says for some people it’s just a chance to get together with their friends and not eat alone but they do find there are a number of people including 10 to 15 or more children who come for lunch because they’re hungry.
Allen says they served an average of 45 people at each lunch in the past in the soup kitchen located in the Anglican Church on Church Street which is supported by several churches in the community. It is open today and every Wednesday and Monday from 11:30 to 12:30.
