OVER-THE-RHINE - Father Tom Bokenkotter visited Dorothy Day's House of Hospitality on the Lower East Side during a visit to New York in 1975.
People felt at home," said Bokenkotter, now 87, who wondered if there was a soup kitchen back in his hometown, where he taught at St. Gregory Seminary and Xavier University.
The only one he could find in Cincinnati tied the meal to a mandatory religious service. So, he recruited friends, and, with just $700 in the bank, started Over-the-Rhine Kitchen, which is based on Day's model and recognized today as Cincinnati's oldest soup kitchen.
In fact, Bokenkotter said, that passionate commitment to the kitchen is the reason it's still around.
In the first year, Bokenkotter prepared food himself, primarily lentil soup, in the seminary kitchen in Mount Washington and drove it to Over-the-Rhine.
A priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, Bokenkotter was assigned in 1981 to Assumption Parish in Walnut Hills.
