Markietra Keese Capstone.

My capstone was creating a Soup Kitchen at a local Philadelphia church. I wanted to start a soup Kitchen because Philadelphia has a large number of people that are starving and/or homeless. It took a lot of dedication and hard work. I had help from my family members that attend the church also. I eventually was able to start my soup kitchen at Harambe Baptist Church in Germantown every Tuesday. The link to the presentation is:

This is a description of a soup kitchen about the things that this particular organization does to keep their soup kitchen going. They show their hours of operations and they post supplies that they need for people to donate. I thought that it was a good idea to post needed materials so that it doesn’t always come out of the church’s budget.

I want to use this website for different menu ideas that I could have to keep the food at a  variety. I don’t really no how to plan a menu so this would be a good guide on the things that I could do.

This is a basic run down of how to start a soup kitchen. It will definitely help me out and be a great resource if I get stuck on something or as a good checklist to make sure I have everything.

This website helps me plan my budget. I would have a certain amount of money given to me to start my Soup Kitchen , and I would have to plan my spending very carefully so that I won’t run out without having all the materials that I need.
