The holidays are known as a time to be with family and enjoy traditions that often involve food.
For those without either, local soup kitchens are essential. Churches in Minot share the task of running a soup kitchen each day of the week. The volunteers provide a hot meal and company.
On Christmas Day, the soup kitchen will be at the Grand International for a free community meal.
“It’s a passion and the people that do it, it’s on their heart. And it’s special to be able to give back to others,” says Lisa Pickett, Soup Kitchen Volunteer.
