How many people went to soup kitchens during the great depression?
I believe that there were soup kitchens, although they were few and far between. They were also called "bread lines". It was just the beginning of the Great Depression and… many men were out of work. Some Trivia Did you know that Al Capone (yes the gangster) started the Chicago soup kitchen's. He did not start them to "get the public on his side." He was sincere, he saw that the public had a need, and he wanted to help, because financially, he could. While Al Capone did indeed feed many of the poor there was always a method to his madness and while he gained popularity and trust from the unemployed he also started Unions which gave work to many of the men in need, yet collected large sums of money which were often used in under-handed dealings. (Jimmy Hoffa) started out well, but soon got caught up in the mob. To this day they don't know where his body is located and never will find it.
the government was too lazy to pay the money for the soup kitchens so they had to have volunteers to pay for the soups get it got it good
The "soup kitchens" were set up in the streets to feed the starving population, The most nutritional food that is cheap and easy to produce is soup.

The Great Depression was an important part of American History. Many people died due to illness, malnutrition, and suicide. It is estimated that about 40,000 people commit…ted suicide during the Great Depression.
many people couldn't pay for food so it was a place to get some for free
They provided food for the unemployed ...
Soup kitchens were important during the Great Depression because it was another free way for the homeless or the starving to eat. They were usually huge rooms with long wooden… tables. They used soup because it was the cheapest way to make food. All it was water and vegetables. Sometimes the vegetables came from the trash out side of restaurants.
According to the United States Census, the population of the United States in 1930 was 123,202,624. By 1940 the population had risen to 132,164,569.
