SO, THEN... WHAT IS A FOOD PANTRY, OR A SOUP KITCHEN?
Food pantries distribute non-prepared foods and other grocery items to needy clients, who then prepare and use these items where they live. They are primarily operated through referral systems, in which staff at nonprofit organizations screen clients and refer them to pantries operated by volunteers. In El Paso, local food pantries obtain their food from the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger and then in turn distribute to their own clients.
A soup kitchen prepares and serves hot meals.
