Lou Landrum, the Soup Kitchen's director, said it's important for volunteers to have a positive impact on the children in the 30-45 minutes they share during a meal."We want to stop the cycle of poverty, and it's important to focus our attention on the children," Landrum said.Most days, volunteers set out additional chairs to accommodate the crowd, Landrum said.Each day, 300 to 500 people visit the Soup Kitchen for a meal -- though the number of children varies from day to day.About 15 to 20 volunteers are needed to run the operation.This summer, with gasoline prices up in Spartanburg, more people are coming to the kitchen because they can't afford fuel and groceries, Landrum said.
