I see children, seniors and veterans every time I visit one of the Interfaith Nutrition Network's 19 soup kitchens. I see children who go to bed hungry every night. I see seniors who are trying to get by on one meal a day. I see veterans who are grateful for our treating them with dignity and respect, while we serve the INN's trademark chicken noodle soup.
This year, the INN will serve more than 400,000 meals. More than 1,000 families will have access to our emergency shelters or transitional housing programs. The INN never charges for any of the services it provides for our neighbors in need.
