New Soup Kitchen Opening in Murphysboro
MURPHYSBORO -- A couple in Murphysboro is making the dream of a soup kitchen into a reality.
Cherie and Gary Green started Supporting People In Need, or S.P.I.N. several years ago. After many challenges the couple received a $30,000 grant from Walmart to put their plan into action.
The S.P.I.N. Soup Kitchen will open to the public on November 2, following a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Cherie Green says the soup kitchen will only be open on Saturdays until they get more volunteers. The couple is still looking for canned food and non-perishable items for the kitchen.
Anyone interested in donating food or volunteering their time can contact the soup kitchen through the link at the top of the page.
