A local soup kitchen is reopening with a special event.
Susanna’s Kitchen in Elkhart provides around 25,000 meals every year and they donate clothing.
They’ve moved three times over the past two years and now they’re reopening after pausing operations for a kitchen remodel.
The soup kitchen opened for the first time in 1982 and welcomes up to 100 people everyday.
The nonprofit also provides coats and other clothing, an initiative it hopes to start-up at its new location in the coming weeks.
Funding for the project was provided through grants from 100 Women Who Care Elkhart County, Elkhart Urban Enterprise Zone, and the Community Foundation of Elkhart County.
The open house will take place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 5 at Grace Lutheran Church in Elkhart. It’s on 831 W. Marion St.
There will be tours through the facility and an opportunity to learn more about the mission of Susanna’s Kitchen.
