I got to share what we’re doing at Mother Marianne’s West Side Kitchen in a city where over 30 percent of its residents live in poverty.
The common thread is who is responding to people in need. They are people of faith. People with strong connections to churches. They are the ones on the front lines.
What motivates our volunteers at West Side Kitchen? For many, they see a touch of the divine in people they serve. Patrons are not just anybody. They are Somebody.

It wasn’t the first time Liz brought her confirmation classes to the soup kitchen.
After cleaning up that Sunday, Liz capped the day with a special gesture. She surprised Director Ed Morgan with a $500 donation.
It wasn’t the first time she did that either.
