The Greensburg Community Bread of Life Soup Kitchen has begun serving patrons at its new building. The kitchen, founded in 2002 by Melissa Foist and Darla Woodhull, serves community members in Decatur County. Bread of Life quickly outgrew its original building, and began to save money to prepare for a move. Foist, the Director of Operations at the soup kitchen, says the new location is about 2 1/2 times larger than the original.
“That’s nice because they have a lot more space and they can not feel like they’re hurried and have to get out or anything because somebody’s right behind them wanting to get out that door also,” she said. “Now we have two different doors and the flow is so much better.”
Foist said since the kitchen’s opening in 2002, the need for its services has continued to grow. Bread of Life is open on Mondays and Wednesdays and currently serves from between 180 and 230 meals a day.
