Hungry and Broke? Soup Kitchens/Food Banks for emergencies

If you should find yourself in trouble, perhaps due to theft or other such emergencies, I have posted a link to a list of soup kitchens.  These are manned by  good people who volunteer of their time to help the less fortunate.

If YOU have a couple of spare hours a week, perhaps you could volunteer an hour or two? (provided it is allowed by law, I suppose, don’t see why if not)
