Naples (Italy) In the soup kitchens of Naples

Three years ago, some friends who attend activities at the Monterone university residence in Naples created a “Whatsapp” group to give others the chance to participate in social and volunteer initiatives. Last year the volunteers helped out at the Mt. Carmel Soup Kitchen, where some 200 meals a day are served in 4 shifts. This year the organizers committed themselves to running the Santa Lucia Soup Kitchen, where about 60 meals are served daily. Over time, many participants in this initiative have learned to see a deeper meaning in their activity as volunteers based on their Christian faith.
