Amer-I-Can Illinois, Inc., and other community groups are launching a free ‘Bean Soup” giveaway for the community every Wednesday at Josephine’s Cooking (Captain Hardtimes Restaurant), 436 E. 79th St., in an effort to stem the violence.
Kublai K. M. Toure, executive director of Ameri-I-Can Illinois, Inc., said, “We are going to feed them once a week to try to find out what services they need.”
The Bean Soup program will kick off 12 noon to 5 p.m., Wednesday, September 26, 2012, at Josephine’s Cooking Restaurant, 436 E. 79th St.
This program is being hosted by Amer-I-Can Illinois, the Illinois Grassroot Coalition, WE CAN, INC., Bishop Dr. Claude Porter with the PLCCA, Lion Construction and the New Life Movement.
Toure also said they plan to register them to vote as well. “We want them to have a purpose in life which will help them feel good about themselves,” said Toure.
