The Soup Kitchen began in Oak Ridge around 30 years ago and has been serving homemade soups, bread and delicious sweets ever since. The Soup Kitchen serves groups and individuals and is a staple for Oak Ridgers. Several locations have come and gone throughout the southeast, but Oak Ridge is the original and still going strong today.
