"Hunger can take both a physical and emotional toll on those it inflicts. Beyond the physical effects, food insecurity wears away one’s self worth. Just stepping foot into a soup kitchen can conjure up feelings of shame and embarrassment to those just looking for a hot meal. But does being hungry mean you have to sacrifice your dignity for a free lunch? 
 
Take a step into the Dilworth Soup Kitchen—where guests are treated more like restaurant customers than people looking for a hand-out. At the Dilworth Soup Kitchen guests get nothing but the best. You won’t see the cafeteria-style lunch lines and day-old lasagna you might find at typical a soup kitchen. Instead, it’s nothing but first-class cuisine donated from some of the best food suppliers in town. And say so long to lunch trays. Here, waiters are on-hand to deliver food and drinks to the eager guests. “We’re treated like a regular person,” says one satisfied patron.
 
With the help of friends and volunteers, Dilworth founder Allen Saxe feeds people every day of the week. They have a new kitchen and they plan to spread their love by opening up more locations..”
