During his visit Mayor Bach said, “We owe a great debt of gratitude to Catholic Charities for all it does to help folks in need. It is a tremendous example of citizens stepping up to do more to help our City.”
Open 365 of the year, the soup kitchen is operated by a small Catholic Charities staff and approximately 45 dedicated volunteers a day from various organizations, churches, corporations, the military, and individuals.
