Capone & soup kitchens[edit]

It's assumed that a basic definition explains a lot. Maybe an expanded history of soup kitchens is needed (talk) 02:15, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Soup Kitchens in An Gorta Mór 1845-51[edit]

I never even thought of the modern soup kitchens. I just set up an article Took the soup about people in the Great Irish Famine who changed their religion in order to be fed by the soup Kitchens during that time (Catholics couldn't take meat on a friday, so had to change their religion when meat was put in the soup on that day). Most Irish people would know the soup kitchens through that. Captain Fearnought (talk) 18:32, 25 September 2008 (UTC)


I added worldwide view, as there are many pages that link to this one that don't mention the US, for example Ottoman empire mentions soup kitchens more than once. - Francis Tyers · 19:35, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
