Monday Night Hospitality is the soup kitchen run by the All Souls Church in my neighborhood. The kitchen provides more than 30,000 meals a year to all those in need. On Monday nights, a group of about 10 or 15 volunteers and I work together to set the tables, prep and cook the meals, serve the guests, and clean everything up afterwards. I help out at the kitchen every Monday I can; it is a wonderful environment of people who are all passionate about helping others and working together to provide a warm restaurant-style meal to those who need it most. I was able to connect with a diverse group of people that I wouldn’t normally interact with. Helping out at the soup kitchen is eye opening because it forces me to really appreciate the many privileges and opportunities I have, while also fueling my desire to actively work towards eliminating socio-economic disparities in America.
