Lombard Soup Kitchen filled me up when I was empty. I had good food, good company, good music and prayer and good conversations. I left there happy, satisfied and hopeful for the peace of our world.

The soup kitchen provides me with a source of nutrition as well as a place to be in touch with the people in and around my community. It proves me with a sense of camaraderie. I can see that there is hope in America for the underclass and the spirit of giving is still alive. The volunteers from the various schools and organizations is impressive. I feel that it is a positive part of the neighborhood. I enjoy coming to the kitchen which also provides spiritual input to those who are down on their luck.

The way the church and the food cupboard helped me is giving the Lord's word. That helps me through the days of my life. They give you food for your body. But the main thing is giving the Lord's word. And they help you in any kind of way that they can help you with. And the people who work in the soup kitchen they all are very nice people to be dealing with the public.
