New Soup Kitchen

ALERT! A new soup kitchen is opening in Cape May County. It'll be called the Free Meal Center, and plans are for it to be open by Memorial Day at the site of the former Mayville Inn at 1206 Route 9 South in Burleigh.

It's easy to forget that poverty exists at the Jersey Shore, but it does. I've driven down and around enough side streets and small towns to see it year round. The Free Meal Center will be the first free daily soup kitchen in Cape May County.

The group running the center takes possession of the building on March 15. If you want to help, check out their website for details.
