LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Kentucky Harvest is donating about 10,000 cans of soup to St. Vincent de Paul's Open Hand Kitchen, which serves the community's poor and homeless as well as the working poor.
About 6,000 cans of soup were delivered Tuesday, with another 4,000 expected later in the week. St. Vincent de Paul says the needs is great -- the facility on South Jackson Street serves a free hot meal lunch and dinner every day to people in need.
It served more than 120,000 free meals last year and asks for donations of canned goods, meats, and pantry staples year-round.
Linda Romine of St. Vincent de Paul explains, "The 10,000 cans of soup translates into roughly 10,000 meals, a can of soup serves about 10,000 meals, we serve about 10,000 meals a month."
Anyone wishing to make a donation can call St. Vincent de Paul at (502) 301-8682.
